As a long-term partner of the Perth Mint, Tavex is pleased to offer one of world’s finest minted silver bullion coins, the 2022 Australian Lunar Year of the Tiger. The silver coin is part of Perth Mint’s praised chronological silver bullion collection, the Australian Lunar Series III, where each coin in the series is only minted once every twelve years in accordance with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. In addition, the most popular one-ounce version in the series has a limited annual mintage of only 300,000 pieces, giving the silver coin a considerable collector’s premium in the secondary market. The Year of the Tiger silver coin contains 99.99% pure silver and is produced with a special minting technique that ensures the coin is in proof-like condition, meaning it has exceptionally shiny and matte surfaces coupled with the richest of detail. This bullion coin is truly a piece of breathtaking silver art suitable for collectors with an eye for beauty and those who wish to give their loved ones something really memorable and special.
Australian Lunar silver coin - Year of the Tiger
The Chinese lunar calendar is today used by many for Taoist cosmology. It is believed that, depending on the year of the zodiac when a person is born, a special relationship exists between the person’s personality and the animal that constitutes part of the Chinese zodiac. The animals in the zodiac are supposed to be of symbolic nature, where each animal is a representation of a specific group of characteristics and traits that can be found in every human being. There are twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac, and each of them is celebrated once every twelve years. The year of the tiger is next celebrated in 2022.
Those born in the year of the tiger are considered to embody the spirit of life, have a constant drive to achieve, and always pursue their ambitions. They are confident and natural-born leaders with a stature of authority, prompting others to quickly agree with them. Courageous and bold, people born in the year of the tiger are to be taken seriously since they will not back down, and if drawn into a disagreement or a fight they will most often come out on top, and that is exactly how they like it. Their gracious and raw appeal makes them extremely alluring and magnetic, but their wild nature and low tolerance to stress will often manifest itself in volatile mood swings and occasional emotional outbursts. Sensitive by nature, they can easily become agitated, but their kind heart, open mind and optimistic stance towards life will make them a favourite of many. It can therefore be seen that the Australian Silver Lunar Year of the Tiger coin is an ideal gift for whoever you love or respect, since giving a Silver Lunar coin means that you are showing affection by immortalising the person’s year of birth and particular virtues in pure and precious silver artwork.
Perth Mint is world renowned
The Perth Mint is a world distinguished mint and precious metals refiner that is located in the City of Perth, in Western Australia. The Perth Mint was founded in 1896 by Britain’s Royal Mint in response to the newly discovered gold deposits in Western Australia. Perth Mint’s task was to refine gold ore from the mines and to strike sovereign gold coins from the refined bullion. Between 1899 and 1931 the Pert Mint produced a considerable amount of gold sovereigns which were distributed in Australia and throughout the British Empire to be used as circulating currency. British control over Perth Mint was relinquished in 1971 to the Government of Western Australia which then assumed ownership of the mint. Today, the Perth Mint is hailed for the exceptional quality of its world class investment bullion coins like the Kookaburra and Koala silver coins, and the Lunar Series. The Perth Mint has been a member of the London Gold Market (predecessor of the LBMA) since 1934. The swan design, which is the Mint’s official assay stamp registered with the LBMA, is recognised internationally and was inspired by the Mint’s location in Perth, where the main river, the Swan, runs through the city.
The obverse features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is portrayed wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem, which was worn for The Coronation. In keeping with tradition, Her Majesty continues to face to the right. “ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA”, 1 dollar, and the weight and purity are also engraved on the obverse of each coin.
The reverse portrays a tiger and its cub. The design includes the inscription TIGER 2022, the Chinese character for ‘tiger’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
