With the release of the 10 oz Gold Lunar Tiger in the Lunar Series III collection, Perth Mint enters the third year in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. To the people of China, tigers are known as the king of all beasts. This is fitting as the tiger is the largest living wild cat species in the world today. The tiger is a well-known symbol of strength and bravery.
All of the 2022 10 oz Gold Australian Lunar Tigers listed here at Silver.com come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins in the 10 oz gold weight come with individual capsules for shipping and boast an unlimited mintage. At Perth Mint, the term unlimited mintage refers to the practice of striking the coins as long as demand exists, but only until the next design is released in the series.
On the obverse of 2022 Gold Australian Lunar Tigers is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the sixth-generation effigy of Her Majesty to feature on Australian coins and was originally designed for the Royal Mint of England by Jody Clark. The 2015 design shows the Queen in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head.
The reverse side of 2022 10 oz Gold Lunar Tigers comes with a new design from Monique Reeves. This is the third iteration of Lunar Series Tiger designs for Perth Coins and depicts a lone tiger. The powerful beast is shown as it stands along a rock ledge with its powerful paws providing grip as it turns back to unleash a roar at an unknown foe. The reverse of the 1 oz, 2 oz, and 10 oz gold coins includes a micro-engraved security feature in the form of a small letter you cannot see without magnification.
