The Lunar Series at Perth Mint started back in 1996. That year saw the Perth Mint introduce a 12-year collection during the first year of the 12-year Chinese Lunar Calendar. Also known as the Zodiac, the lunar calendar follows the same 12-year cycle each time starting with the Year of the Mouse and concluding with the Year of the Pig.
For the third year, the tiger comes around in the cycle. Those born under the sign of the tiger are considered natural-born leaders who showcase courage and confidence in decision-making. The 1 oz gold coin in the Year of the Tiger release is the only Gold Lunar Series III coin with a mintage limit. The Perth Mint will strike no more than 30,000 coins, or cease production once the 2023 Lunar Series design is ready, whichever comes first.
The obverse side of 2022 Gold Australian Lunar Tigers features an image of Queen Elizabeth II. In this sixth-generation design from Jody Clark, the Queen is featured in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. This design first debuted on Royal Mint of England coins in 2016 and came to Australian coins in 2018.
On the reverse face of 2022 1 oz Gold Lunar Tigers is a depiction of a large adult tiger. With a long, muscular body and massive paws, the tiger stands along the edge of rocky terrain as it looks back over its body and lets out a roar, exposing its massive teeth in the process.
These 2022 1 oz Gold Australian Lunar Tigers are available to purchase today in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins will ship in individual capsules, rolls of 20 coins, or boxes of 100 coins, with a total of five rolls in the box.
