Product Description

Celebrate the auspicious Year of the Tiger with this large yet affordable one ounce, pure silver dollar, brilliantly enhanced with full color!
Sold out at the Mint!
This large, impressive coin represents a tremendous value, struck in pure silver! The Perth Mint's Lunar Zodiac Series II coins are huge! At more than 45 mm in diameter, they are nearly 2 inches across! This beauty is made all the more desirable by the Mint's execution of this intriguing animal motif in pure silver, artistically rendered in brilliant, vibrant hues! The full color design is highlighted on frosted, matte fields (or background), further enhancing an already handsome design (which is even nicer looking than the mint-supplied images suggest). Between the large size, the low mintage (only 3,800 in the mint's presentation packaging) & the beauty of the design, color and finish, we think you'll be impressed with this affordable, pure silver dollar!

A fierce and noble tiger takes a breather.The Year of the Tiger - Most Auspicious!
Centuries ago, the Chinese invented a calendar based on the lunar (rather than the solar) cycle. There are twelve animals in the Chinese lunar zodiac, each corresponding in sequence to a year rather than a month.

In 2010 we celebrate the Year of the Tiger. According to tradition, people born during a Year of the Tiger (1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, and 2010) are said to exhibit that animal’s attributes. They are charismatic and fearsome, generous but unpredictable. They are often noted for their enthusiasm in life, and are unafraid of exploring new territory. They can also be aggressive, especially when they perceive a threat or are cornered.

This is the third annual release in the new Lunar Zodiac Series II from Australia that began in 2008.

An extreme closeup view of a hansome and noble tiger's face. Observing the fearsome carnivore that is the tiger, whether in nature or in a zoological park, we mere humans can't help but be awestruck by the size, strength, and elegance of this majestic creature. The tiger (Panthera tigris) is easily one of the most intriguing, most beautiful, and most endangered great animals in the world. It is also one of the two most auspicious animals on the Chinese lunar calendar (the other being the Dragon).

Technology Note

Obverse
A splendid tiger reclines serenely in a field of grass, its massive paws and long tail for the moment relaxed. The legend YEAR OF THE TIGER defines the theme. The Chinese character for "Tiger" is to the left, while the Perth Mint's "P" mint mark is judiciously placed to the right, near the 2:00 position along the rim.
