The Year of the Tiger is the third in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. While there are various collections of lunar-themed bullion from mints around the globe, the Perth Mint collections are the only ones that start and end on the proper first and last years of the cycle.
The Zodiac always starts with the Year of the Mouse and concludes with the Year of the Pig. As such, Perth Mint collections start in that first year with separate designs for the silver and gold coins, and end during the Year of the Pig, again featuring separate imagery in the silver and gold releases.
The obverse side of 2022 1 oz Platinum Australian Lunar Tigers comes with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In this design, Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. The design was created in 2015 by Jody Clark and debuted on the coins of the Royal Mint in 2016. The Perth Mint revealed the design for the first time in 2018.
On the reverse field of 2022 Platinum Australian Lunar Tigers is an image of an adult tiger. The lion might be known as the King of the Jungle, but it is the tiger that is the largest living species of cat. The powerful tiger has massive paws and shows of its razor-sharp teeth in this design as it stands along the edge of a rocky outcrop.
