Collectors looking for something unique and artistic to add to their display shelves may want to consider one of the 2022 offerings from the Lithuanian Mint. The 2022 Niue Year of the Water Tiger 2 oz Silver Coin boasts stunning designs that make it a wonderful conversation piece.
Frosted devices allow the inscriptions on the obverse of this coin to stand out over its unique mirrored field. The inscriptions read FIVE DOLLARS, 2022, ELIZABETH II, and NIUE. The right-facing portrait of Elizabeth II created by Ian Rank-Broadley will be familiar to coin collectors, as it appears on coins from across the globe and was the official British Royal Mint portrait from 1998 to sometime in 2015. Her Majesty’s effigy is also frosted and floats above the background created by many small round mirrors.
The reverse of this coin does not have any inscriptions. Instead, it’s made entirely of tiny round mirrors in different sizes. The mirrors are carefully placed to create the pattern of a tiger’s face. The clever design is in keeping with the 2022 Water Tiger, as it looks like the tiger might actually be made of water droplets. Alternatively, the tiger could be stepping through the rain in the dark so that the droplets frame its face. It’s a stunning design that certainly captures the imagination.
This 2022 Niue Year of the Water Tiger Silver Coin ships in a protective plastic capsule and comes with a lovely presentation box. The box includes the design of the Water Tiger on the top, making it a great addition to your display case too.
The Chinese Zodiac is made up of 12 animals. They rotate out each year, so that it’s the Year of the Tiger every 12 years. The Tiger is the third animal in the Chinese Zodiac list. However, you can also couple elements with the animals. The elements are water, fire, metal, earth, and wood, and they also rotate out. While the Year of the Tiger falls every 12 years, the Year of the Water Tiger only falls every 60 years; the Year of the Water Tiger before 2022 was 1962.
The rarity of this coin along with the unique design makes it a favorite of collectors. Order yours while inventories are available at Provident Metals. Call us at 1-800-313-3315 or reach out via chat or email if you have any questions.
