Auspicious symbols of Tiger
The strengths of the 12 animals of the lunar calendar are said to be evident in those born during their rule. Determination, courage, confidence and charm are among the powerful characteristics that the tiger reputedly bestows on those born under its influence in 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 and 2022.
2022 Year of the tiger design
Honouring the lunar calendar’s third animal representative, this 2022 gold bullion coin portrays a fearless tiger in its rocky homeland – reflecting the awe-inspiring creature’s reputation as the king of the mountains. As well as the inscription ‘TIGER’ and the Chinese character for tiger, the design also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, Gold Lunars have been trusted for their weight and purity by investors worldwide since 1996.
For additional peace of mind, the coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.
Presentation and mintage
Presented in a protective acrylic capsule, this coin is subject to a maximum mintage of 5,000. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first.
