This coin is part of Perth Mint’s super popular Lunar Series III series of coins with some coins selling out completely. The 2022 1/10 Australian Gold Lunar Tiger design is a beautiful image of a tiger turned back looking left toward its tail with its mouth open so you can see the razor sharp teeth perched on a rock. To the left of the image is the Chinese character for tiger and ‘TIGER 2022’. To the left of these is the Perth Mint’s mint mark, ‘P’. Below the rock, under the lion’s back foot, are the initials ‘MR’ for the artist, Monique Reeves.
The coin’s obverse side has Queen Elizabeth II as depicted by Jody Clark. Clack’s design captures her at age 89 wearing her diadem crown, dangle earrings and necklace. Written above her head is ‘Elizabeth II’ and ‘Australia’. Below her portrait is ‘1/10 oz 9999 fine gold’ and ‘15 dollars’. Jody Clark’s initials, ‘JC’ can be seen on the queen’s right shoulder.
Australia’s Perth Mint is responsible for minting the legal tender of Australia but also mints commemorative coins and bullion for collectors and investors. Founded in 1899 as another location of the Royal Mint, the mint later became the mint for Australia. Over the years they have proven to be masters of metal and beautiful design. Steeped in tradition and expertise with so much experience, the mint has embraced modern minting techniques and has set trends in minting coins and bullion. Many of the Perth Mint’s series of coins have been hugely successful with many of them selling out altogether.
