AUSTRALIAN LUNAR SERIES III 2022 YEAR OF THE TIGER 1/4 oz GOLD BULLION COINS
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.
The Perth Mint will produce no more than 30,000 1/4oz coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first. Due to the low mintage of the 1oz size it is highly sought-after and is sure to sell out fast.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
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.
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 bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
