A new Lunar Year series begins with the Year of the Tiger (2022), and our 18-karat gold offering has been upgraded to beautiful 99.99% pure gold! Like the king of the mountain depicted on this coin, people born in the year of the Tiger are strong-willed, confident and courageous. Tigers are known to pounce on their work because they like to get things done, and this often leads to success. They are natural leaders with a penchant for adventure, and they are determined to overcome any challenge that they encounter on the path to greater heights.

Celebrate your fearless Tiger spirit — order your ½ oz. 99.99% pure gold Lunar coin today!

Special features:
  • NEW LUNAR SERIES! Our 18-karat gold Lunar series ended with the Year of the Ox (2021). This coin marks the start of a new annual series honouring all 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac.

  • A LUXURIOUS DISPLAY: Your coin is encapsulated and elegantly presented in a red lacquered wood case with a red outer box, evoking the Chinese New Year custom of gifting “lucky money” in a red envelope.
  • EXCLUSIVE MINTAGE: A highly collectible coin, only 1,888 have been minted and are available to collectors worldwide.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.

Inspired by traditional Chinese brush paintings, Canadian artist Aries Cheung offers a modern take on the classic image of the Tiger ascending the mountain. The auspicious clouds and distant mountain tops suggest the Tiger is standing at the top of the world, where it has struck a pose that emphasizes its power, confidence and authority. In the distance, pine trees are symbols of resilience and longevity. The Tiger is marked by auspicious wind-wheel motifs that hint at its divine power, while also representing good fortune rolling in and a forward momentum. Along with the Chinese character for “Tiger,” the reverse includes the year “2022”, the word “CANADA” and the face value, “100 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know?
  • Years of the Tiger: You’re a Tiger if you were born in 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 or 2022. In Chinese culture, the Tiger is considered to be an especially lucky symbol.
  • The Tiger is the third sign in the Chinese zodiac. According to Chinese mythology, the order of the signs was determined in a great race organized by the Jade Emperor. The Rat finished first by riding atop the Ox, which came in second. The current slowed the Tiger during the river crossing, but the Tiger pressed on and claimed the third spot in the zodiac.
  • Each animal sign also falls under the influence of one of the five elements. It depends on the year in which you were born: if your birth year ends with the number 0 or 1, your element is Metal (e.g., 2021 was the year of the Metal Ox); if it ends with 2 or 3, your element is Water; if it ends with 4 or 5, your element is Wood; if it’s 6 or 7, your element is Fire; and if it’s 8 or 9, your element is Earth. Each element shapes a person’s personality based on its natural properties or characteristics – for example, water can be adaptable and calming, but it can also overwhelm and easily change direction.

For an elegant presentation, your Lunar Year of the Tiger coin is housed in a red lacquered wood case with a red outer box, evoking the Chinese New Year custom of gifting “lucky money” in a red envelope..
