Australian Lunar Series III coins represent the third iteration of popular lunar-themed designs from Perth Mint. The very first series launched in 1996 with only gold coins available. In the early stages of the Lunar Series I collection, silver bullion coins were also added to the series.
In 2020, the launch of the Lunar Series III program directly followed the conclusion of the Lunar Series II program and brought with it another addition. After the Lunar Series II program ran from 2008-2019 with gold and silver coins, the Lunar Series III program introduced the first-ever platinum coin. The gold range of coins remains the most diverse, with options ranging from 1/20 oz gold on the small end to 10 oz gold on the large end.
The obverse of 2022 1/10 oz Gold Australian Lunar Tigers features the latest sixth-generation effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. This design was created in 2015 by Jody Clark and features the Queen at the age of 89 as she wears the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. This portrait is the first on an Australian coin since 1966 to include the Queen’s shoulders within the design element.
On the reverse side of 2022 Gold Lunar Tigers is a depiction of the largest living cat species, the tiger. The powerful beast is shown striding along a rock ledge as its massive paws grip the edges. The tiger’s head is turned to look behind its frame as it unleashes a roar. In so doing, it is showcasing its large, razor-sharp teeth.
These 2022 1/10 oz Gold Australian Lunar Tigers are available to you for purchase individually in protective capsules or by multiples of 20 coins in sealed rolls. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. With an unlimited mintage, Perth Mint will strike these coins into late 2022 when the next design of the series is ready for release.
