The limited-mintage 2010 Perth Mint Series 1 Year of the Tiger silver coin is a beautiful homage to the Chinese Zodiac. Your coin contains one troy ounce of .999 fine silver and will arrive in brilliant uncirculated condition in a protective capsule.
These coins are truly fierce. The obverse features a tiger padding across rocky terrain, stripes stark against the coin’s shimmering surface. The coin is inscribed with 2010–the year of the tiger–and a Chinese character. Below reads “1 OZ 999 SILVER.”
The reverse includes a detailed portrait of Queen Elizabeth, with the words “ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA” and “1 DOLLAR 2007” arcing around the rim. Though the coin was produced to honor 2010 as the year of the tiger, it was actually minted in 2007, so it bears two different dates.
This fine piece concluded the first 12-year run of the Perth Mint Lunar Series that had begun in 1998.
The Chinese Zodiac completes every 12 years, with each year assigned an animal. Children born that year are thought to have particular characteristics–for instance, Tigers are thought to be brave, powerful, active, intelligent and sometimes terrifying. The Year of the Tiger has been 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998 and 2010.
