Tigers are the largest living member of the Panthera genus and the largest cat of any species alive in the world today. Tigers reside in fractured habitats across the Indian Subcontinent, China, Russia, and Southeast Asia. These large cats are known for having long bodies with short legs, massive paws, and a powerful jaw.
For centuries, the tiger has been viewed as a symbol of power. Revered in countless cultures throughout Asia, the tiger was viewed as a symbol of imperial might by Chinese emperors and often adopted into the seals and badges of rulers to associate their reign with the power of the tiger.
The obverse of 2022 Platinum Rwandan Tigers features the national coat of arms for the Republic of Rwanda. This design features on the obverse of all coins in this series and comes with a traditional basket, branches of coffee and sorghum, warriors’ shields, and other visual elements reflective of the nation’s culture, economy, and indigenous people.
On the reverse side of the 2022 1 oz Platinum Tiger, you will find a beautiful mosaic. Similar to the other lunar-themed designs in this collection, the 2022 release comes with a mosaic field that offers varying finishes to each little tile within the design element. You will easily notice the image of a powerful tiger showing off its array of deadly natural weapons, such as its teeth and sharp claws.
These 2022 1 oz Platinum Rwandan Tigers are available to you with individual display boxes. Each coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and is available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
