2022 Year of the Tiger 1/2oz .9999 Gold Bullion Coin – Lunar Series III
These magnificent gold coins celebrate the Year of the Tiger, the third of twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.
Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar tiger in 2022, 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974 and every 12th preceding year are said to be natural leaders blessed with courage, charm and confidence.
No mintage limit applies to the 10oz, 2oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz, and 1/20oz coins. However, production will close at the end of 2022 when The Perth Mint will declare each coin’s official mintage.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
Each coin’s reverse portrays a tiger standing on a peak with its head turned towards its tail. The fearless animal’s open jaw features razor sharp canine teeth. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘tiger’, the inscription ‘TIGER 2022’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The obverse of each coin depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.
The reverse of the 1oz, 2oz and 10oz coins includes a security feature in the form of a micro-engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
Each gold bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
