The Year of the Tiger is the third in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. While all of the world’s bullion programs celebrating the animals from the Zodiac showcase the proper animal with each date mark, only the Perth Mint’s series starts on the proper first year of the cycle, the Year of the Mouse, and concludes in the proper final year of the cycle, the Year of the Pig.

The box has a magnetic lid with the release details on the lid. The box is housed within a Year of the Tiger shipper from Perth Mint that has tiger artwork on the outside. A Certificate of Authenticity is available from Perth Mint with your purchase.
