The reverse side of the coin features a tiger and its cub. The two tigers are on top of a rock with bamboo and ferns around it. Between the two tigers is the Chinese symbol for tiger and ‘TIGER 2022’. To the left of the tigers is the Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mint mark. At the base of the image are the initials ‘JM’ for the artist’s name, Jennifer McKenna. 

 

The obverse side of the coin has Jody Clark’s Queen Elizabeth II. This rendition of Queen Elizabeth has her in profile as she looks to the right. She is wearing her diadem crown and her royal earrings and necklace. Arched over the image of the queen are the words ‘Elizabeth II Australia’. Below the queen are engraved ‘½ oz. 9999 Ag’ and ‘50 cents’.

They are now actually setting trends in the world of coins.

    Great silver coin! I received it a week ago. It is worth buying this coin, especially as a gift for various events (birthday, Christmas, etc.). Lunars have always been a special series of coins for me.

    Beautiful lunar tiger coins. The fractional lunars are worth the premium in my opinion and HERO had them for a good price. First time ordering from HERO also and they shipped super fast. I’ll definitely be ordering again.
