The largest of the world’s wild cats provides the second subject for the New Zealand Mint’s Fierce Nature series of shaped coins. One of the most instantly recognizable animals in the world, the Tiger has always riveted the human imagination with its strength, grace, and sheer ferocity. Solitary predators with large ranges that they need to feed themselves and rear their cubs, Tigers have found themselves under pressure from habitat loss, but artworks devoted to them continue to remind us why conservation is so crucial. The latest Fierce Nature coin provides just such a reminder: the 2022 Niue Tiger 2 oz Silver Coin is now available from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Niue Tiger Silver Coin comes with an individual Certificate of Authenticity to verify its unique number in the mintage. It ships in a windowed and themed display case, and Provident Metals fully insures each shipment against loss or damage.
The coin’s obverse side features an Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II, verifying it as legal tender. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “FIVE DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
The reverse side of the coin has a realistically-engraved visage of a tiger’s head captured in mid-roar. Every detail of that head is visible in lovingly-rendered detail accentuated by a high-relief design.
The Fierce Nature series from the New Zealand Mint is dedicated to the celebration of some of the most famous and beautiful wildlife species in the world. It launched with a celebration of the Lion, and its second entry is devoted to the Tiger whose grace and beauty inspired one of the most famous of all poems in the English language: William Blake’s tribute to its “fearful symmetry.” With care, attention to detail, and extraordinary craftsmanship, the latest Fierce Nature coin is sure to capture imaginations all over the world, just as the Tiger has always done.
