Story

King of the lunar jungle

First issued in 1996, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the animals of the ancient lunar zodiac with a sequence of annual designs portraying the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. This spectacular 2022 silver proof coins feature the tiger, which is said to bestow courage, confidence and charm on those born under its influence in 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 and 2022.

Charming tiger design

Each coin portrays a charming image of a tiger cub following its proud and protective parent across a rocky terrain featuring ferns and bamboo. The design includes the inscription ‘TIGER 2022’, the Chinese character for ‘tiger’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
