The Year of the Tiger is third in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese lunar calendar. Although the tiger appears once every 12 years in the cycle of the Zodiac, it is not necessarily the same tiger. Chinese mythology includes various versions of the animals in the Zodiac based on alignment with the Earth’s elements.
2022 is the Year of the Water Tiger, the first time the Water Tiger has appeared since 1962. While all those born under the sign of the tiger are said to have strength and bravery, those born in the year of the Water Tiger also have a strong sense of self-esteem and are gifted learners.
In the obverse design of 2022 15 Gram Gold Chinese Lunar Year of the Tiger Blossom Coins, the mint features the national emblem of China. The national seal features the famous Tiananmen Gate that guards the entrance to the Forbidden City. Above the Tiananmen Gate, you will notice the five stars from the Chinese flag.
For the reverse field of 2022 Gold Chinese Lunar Year of the Tiger Blossom Coins, the design element offers the image of a young tiger cub. This fluffy young tiger cub is shown lying on its stomach with a cautious, slightly curious look on its face.
