The illustrated shippers in the Proof Lunar Series III range are designed to create a full diorama when you collect all 12. The design on this shipper shows the tiger crossing a river, an illustration of the mythical story of the 12 animal creatures competing in the great race to meet the Jade Emperor. When you collect all 12 coins in this series, the illustrated shippers form a complete diorama of the race.
Obverse design elements on these 2022 1/2 oz Proof Silver Australian Lunar Tigers depict Queen Elizabeth II. This is the sixth-generation effigy of the Queen to grace Australian coins and features the Queen in right-profile relief. In this design, the Queen is aged 89 years and wears the George IV State Diadem Crown. This crown is an official piece from the Crown Jewels with an astonishing 1,333 diamonds in total in its setting.
Reverse visuals on 2022 Proof Silver Australian Lunar Tigers include the image of a young tiger cub and its parent. As the two tigers stride through the jungle, you will notice bamboo and other foliage as the pair moves through the rocky terrain. While the cub is playful and confident in the protection of its parent, the adult tiger shows off its powerful frame while keeping a watchful eye on its young cub.
