In the Chinese lunar calendar, 2022 is the Year of the Tiger. It’s said that those born under the sign of the Tiger are endowed with courage, confidence, and a natural sense of leadership. The Perth Mint has minted the magnificent 2022 Australian 1 oz Silver Lunar Tiger coin to celebrate this momentous occasion.
With a mintage of a mere 300,000 pieces, Hero Bullion is excited to offer the 1 oz variant of the 2022 Australian Silver Lunar Tiger. These highly desirable coins are struck from 99.99% pure silver and are sure to sell out quickly.
On the obverse of each Lunar Tiger is the Jody Clark depiction of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse displays a playful tiger cub following its vigilant parent through a landscape of bamboo and ferns. The reverse design also includes the Chinese character that represents “tiger” with an inscription reading “TIGER 2022” and the Perth Mint mintmark.
In addition, the reverse of the 2022 Australian 1 oz Silver Lunar Tiger features an authentication measure: a micro-engraved letter embedded into the motif, only visible through a magnifying glass.
