The Lunar New Year is an important date that is celebrated by communities worldwide.
The Ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar follows a 12-year cycle featuring 12 animals including the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. Each year is represented in succession by one of these animals and the traits that they are thought to embody. As the Year of the Tiger, 2022 is a year of strength, exorcising evils, and braveness.
The legend says that the Chinese emperor Jade held a Great Race with animals. The race would determine the first twelve zodiac signs. The first twelve animals to cross a river before the end of the race would be featured in the Zodiac.
The Tiger was one of the favourites to win the race, but the powerful river stream kept sending the big cat in another direction. That did not discourage the confident Tiger, which kept swimming and made it ashore after the Rat and the Ox. The Tiger is the third animal of the Chinese zodiac.
It is said that people born under the sign of the Tiger are born natural leaders. Some traits associated are the year of the tiger are: thrill-seeking, ambition, justice, but maybe also a little overconfident and impetuous.
These magnificent silver coins celebrate the Chinese Lunar Tiger year in great style! The reverse portrays a tiger cub and his protective parent across a rocky landscape featuring ferns and bamboo.

The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint’s 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst one of the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
