1/4 ounce Year of the Tiger 2022 gold coin, from the Lunar III series of The Perth Mint.
Precious metals from Australia have a huge market in Asia. That is why there are more and more collections focusing on them, such as the Lunar series, which depicts the twelve animals of the Chinese horoscope.
In this case, the tiger takes centre stage, to which those born in 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 and 2022 belong, to name just a few of the recent examples. This animal is associated with power, colourfulness and unpredictability. It represents people hungry for adventure, to accomplish all their goals and to get involved in the social events around them.
The coin is spectacular. We find the animal on the cross, which has a simple composition: with a flat background, it stands on a rock in a foreshortened posture, with the upper part of its trunk turned in on itself and its mouth open and roaring. To his right is the symbol of the tiger, his name and the date on which the coin was issued.
On the cross is the face of Queen Elizabeth II. This part is divided into two areas: an inner one, where the drawing of the monarch is located; and an outer one, with all the coin's specifications. The design of the Queen stands out for the high quality of its details, especially the curls of her hair and the ornamentation of the crown.
The Year of the Tiger 2022 coin from The Perth Mint is struck in 1/4 ounce gold, has a thickness of 2.20 millimetres, a diameter of 22.60 and weighs 7.779 grams. Its face value is 25 Australian dollars and we will bring it to your home at the best price and with the best facilities.
