The Year of the Tiger is the third in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Otherwise known as the Zodiac, the calendar features one animal for each of the 12 years. Chinese folklore suggests these animals were assigned to each year based on their finish in the Great Race, a race to meet the Jade Emperor. The tiger arrived third behind the mouse and ox.

On the obverse of 2022 Proof Silver Australian Lunar Tigers is an image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is the longest-reigning monarch in British history and features here in the sixth-generation Australian design during her reign. Created in 2015 by Jody Clark, this effigy shows the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
The reverse field of 2022 1 oz Proof Silver Lunar Tigers comes with a depiction of two tigers striding through the jungle. Walking along rocky terrain, the adult tiger is leading up front with a watchful eye out for its surroundings. Behind it, a small, confident cub is following along and is happy to explore the jungle alongside its parent.
