Product Description

Huge size, spectacular color and a genuine GOLDEN TOPAZ gemstone add to the prestige of this MASSIVE silver kilogram!

Sold out at the Mint!No small change here! This enormous, majestic coin represents a tremendous investment opportunity, struck in pure silver! The Perth Mint's most prestigious coins in its new Lunar Zodiac Series II are breathtakingly huge! At more than 100 mm in diameter, they are a full 4 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 striking, 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). Even better are the low mintage limit and the genuine golden topaz gemstone (mined in the Australian outback!) set into the tiger's eye!

A fierce and noble tiger takes a breather. Between the size of the tableau & the beauty of the design, gemstone, color and finish, this coin can't fail to impress even the most jaded collector or investor! The only thing more impressive than this prodigious chunk of precious metal is our seemingly impossibly low price for such an exceptional wonder!

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.

An extreme closeup view of a hansome and noble tiger's face. This is the third annual release in the new Lunar Zodiac Series II from Australia that began in 2008.

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).

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.
