The Chinese traditional lunar calendar is a cycle of years governed by the mythical beasts who comprise the Signs of the Zodiac. A rich astrological tradition that brings together a vast lore regarding the heavens, the classic elements, and human nature, this calendar has inspired commemorative coins and collectibles for many decades, often some of the most popular items in numismatics. The Perth Mint is a leader in producing such celebratory coins, and in 2022 paid tribute to the Year of the Tiger, said to give people born in one the qualities associated with the mythic King of the Jungle. Tigers are thought to be courageous, authoritative, committed to justice and fair play, and possessing great ambition and drive. Join in the observation of this legacy with your own 2022 Australian Lunar Tiger 1 oz Gold Coin, available in flawless condition from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Australian Lunar Tiger Gold Coin comes in a protective plastic slab with a label from either of the leading coin graders (NGC or PCGS) that verifies the highest grade a coin can receive: Mint State 70, which indicates a piece in perfect condition, entirely free of visible flaws even under five times magnification.
Queen Elizabeth II appears in effigy on the obverse — confirming the coin as legal tender — along with the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA,” “1 oz 9999 Au,” and “100 DOLLARS.”
A roaring Tiger stands on a crag on the reverse field, accompanied by the lettering “TIGER 2022,” the Chinese character for “Tiger,” and the Perth Mint’s distinctive “P” mint mark.
The Perth Mint has a decades’ long tradition of producing highly-prized coins in pure gold for the collectors’ market, and its collection of Lunar coins has long been popular with customers in China and all over the world. It introduced Lunar Series I in 1996, and has completed a Series through annual releases with each complete revolution of the age-old cycle of the Chinese Zodiac. This tribute to the Year of the Tiger is a part of Series III, and features the third of the twelve animals that define this ancient celestial tradition.
