The obverse of this coin includes a detailed depiction of the temple of Angkor Wat. This Buddhist temple was originally built sometime in the 12th century and is still a spiritual site in Cambodia today, acting as a mecca for Buddhist travelers as well as a general tourist location. Angkor Wat sits in an area of numerous buildings and is part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. Angkor Wat’s land area is more than three times larger than that of Vatican City, making it the largest religious complex by land in the world. The temple itself was originally built for Vishnu, a Hindu god, but it was converted to be a Buddhist building the same century.
The reverse of the 2022 Silver Proof Cambodia Lost Tigers Coin features a lifelike rendering of the face of an Indochinese tiger. The tiger seems to be pushing its head through some leaves, creating a natural-looking habitat for the magnificent animal. The Lost Tigers of Cambodia coin series brings attention to the plight of the tigers in Cambodia. They’re believed to be functionally extinct, with no wild sightings in many years. The Indochinese tiger is on the endangered species list and is believed to be extinct in China too.
This coin ships in a protective plastic capsule and comes with a gorgeous display box that includes images of the tiger and information about the coin. You also receive a Certificate of Authenticity — always an appreciated addition when you’re dealing with such low mintages.
