Introduction

Tavex has the honour to present the subsequent coin in the legendary Australian Lunar coin program - the 1/10 oz Year of the Tiger 2022 gold bullion coin. Honouring the lunar calendar’s third animal representative, this 2022 gold bullion coin portrays a fearless tiger in its rocky homeland. Gold Lunars are issued as legal tender (according to the Australian Currency Act 1965) and investors have trusted these bullion coins for their weight and purity worldwide since 1996.

Why Buy

  • Australian Lunar Year of the Tiger gold coins are money. The Gold Lunar Series was introduced for the first time in 1996 and every gold coin in the series, including the Year of the Tiger, is considered to be legal tender by the Australian Government. 
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Tiger gold coins are rare. Issued only twice before the Lunar Series started, in 1998 and 2010, the Year of the Tiger coin is one of the rarest legal tender gold bullion coins to be issued in the 21st century.
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Tiger gold coins are based on the treasured Chinese lunar calendar. Those born in the year of the tiger are generally perceived to be born leaders, ambitious, authoritative, and they like to be in control, so a bit of caution is advised when being near a tiger!
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Tiger gold coins are great gifts for your loved ones. Give a tribute to the ones you appreciate by marking their virtues and year of birth in pure 24 karat gold, a gift that will stay with them forever.  
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Tiger gold coins are made in proof condition. Minted with such high quality, brilliance and rich detail, it becomes hard not to call it “my precious”.  
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Tiger gold coins are popular with astute collectors. Its motif of the tiger that varies every 12th year, its maximum mintage limit, and its quality, purity and legal tender status mean that the coin has a considerable premium over its melt value in the secondary market.
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Tiger gold coins are internationally recognised. By being part of the Australian Gold Lunar Series which has been in continuous production for 20 years, and by portraying motifs of the famous Chinese zodiac and the effigy of the most powerful and longest serving queen in the 20th century, Queen Elizabeth II, the Australian Lunar Year of the Tiger gold coin is recognised throughout the world by bullion dealers and collectors alike.

History

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 Gold Lunar Year of the Tiger coin is an ideal gift for whoever you love or respect, since giving a Gold Lunar coin means that you are showing affection by immortalising the person’s year of birth and particular virtues in pure and precious golden artwork.

Australian Lunar series III gold coins 

The first Australian Lunar gold coin series produced by The Perth Mint 1996-2007 became popular beyond expectation among investors and collectors. The design was based on the Chinese zodiac and annually updated design featured an animal on the reverse.  Towards the end of the first series the demand for second 12-year Lunar coin series became evident and bullion coins from the Australian Lunar Series II (2008-2019) represented a trusted and convenient means of investing in precious metals.

Thus, the release of the new, third series was a logical and expected sequel to Australia's most popular coin program and its first coin was issued in 2020. Backed by an Australian Government guarantee of weight and purity, each legal tender coin also provides an extremely cost-effective way to acquire precious metal.

According to Chinese mythology, the order of the animals in the ancient zodiac calendar was decided with a great race across a river. Traditional storytellers say the magnanimous ox offered to carry the mouse across the water – and thus it was that on the opposite bank the diminutive creature was able to leap from the ox’s head and claim first place! The video of the race by the Perth Mint can be watched here https://youtu.be/iTKUz5u7r14

Legend has it that each zodiac animal influences the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. 

Mintage

The Perth Mint will produce no more than 30,000 1 oz gold coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first. No mintage limit applies to 1 Kilo, 10oz, 2oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz and 1/20oz gold coins. Production will take place only one year, after which The Perth Mint will declare each coin’s official mintage. A maximum of 100 10 Kilo gold coins will be produced. However, production will take place only one year, after which the coin’s actual mintage will be declared. The final mintages of the Lunar series can be found here: http://www.perthmint.com/investment-bullion-bars-and-coins-mintages.aspx

Australian Lunar gold coins are based on the Chinese Lunar Zodiac

It is believed that the Chinese lunar calendar was created almost five millennia ago by primeval ruling dynasties. Originally, the calendar was based on the cycles of the moon, as it was much easier for the ancient astronomers to make the necessary calculation. But, as time passed, they noticed the disparity between the lunar year which consisted of twelve months, each month consisting of 29.5 days which totalled 354 days in a year, and the solar year, which numbered a total of 365.24 days, thus making the lunar year 11 days shorter than the earth’s yearly orbit around the sun. To better synchronise the lunar calendar with the sun, a leap month was added every two or three years similar to that of the modern solar calendar where nearly every 4 years on February 29 an extra leap day is added to align the earth’s revolution around the sun.

In contrast to most other calendars, the Chinese lunar calendar does not count years in an infinite sequence, but is instead composed of  a 12 year period that is repeated five times in order to get to a cycle that is equal to 60 years. Each year of the period consists of two components, a heavenly stem and a terrestrial branch. The heavenly stem consists of ten symbols, which were the names of the ten days in the week used by the ancient Chinese, while the terrestrial branch consists of 12 animals from the Chinese zodiac cycle. For the creation of one year, each stem is combined with every second terrestrial branch. Thus, when all possible combinations between the heavenly stems and terrestrial branches have been made, this being equal to 60, the final cycle is created and subsequently it starts over once again. This method of cyclical dating is believed to be among the longest continuous sequences of time measurement in history. China today uses the Gregorian calendar, a solar calendar, for all civil purposes, but the lunar calendar is still the main calendar used by various communities in China and East Asia to determine celebrity dates such as jubilees, weddings, the Chinese New Year and other festivities. 

 

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.

Obverse

The obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Australia’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Australia has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Above the Queen’s effigy is the text “ELIZABETH II” and “AUSTRALIA”. Inscribed below the effigy is the denomination, the year of mintage, weight and purity of the coin, and the designer’s initials “IRB” – Ian Rank-Broadley.

Reverse

The reverse 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.

Packaging

Each coin is individually packaged in a hard acrylic capsule at the Perth Mint. For bulk purchases, multiples of 20 are available in original factory packaging.
