Perth Mint’s lunar collections date all the way back to 1996 when Lunar Series I was introduced. The collection offered silver and gold coins from the get-go, with each series offering its own design. Since that time, the silver and gold coins have each featured a separate design for each of the 12 issues in a given series.
Following the Lunar Series I collection, Perth Mint introduced the Lunar Series II program and now the Lunar Series III program, the latter launching in 2020. With the introduction of Lunar Series III, Perth Mint delivered the first platinum bullion coin in the series. However, it is the 1 oz silver coin that remains the most popular and diverse.
The obverse of 2022 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Lunar Tigers features a right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in what is the sixth-generation effigy for Australian coins. Designed in 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England, this portrait shows the Queen at the age of 89 with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head.
On the reverse side of the 2022 Proof Silver Lunar Tigers is a depiction of a tiger family. In this design, an adult tiger leads its young cub through the rocky terrain of a jungle. While the adult is vigil and watching for danger, the cub is playfully following along. These coins are high-relief proofs with greater visual depth in the background field and better 3D relief for the design strikes.
These 2022 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Lunar Tigers are available to purchase with individual packaging. The coins are held in classic displays from Perth with a black base and clear lid. The coin and case ship inside themed shipping boxes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity included.
