2022 Canada $100 Lunar Year of the Tiger 1/2oz. Pure Gold Coin (No Tax)

The Year of the Tiger (2022) marks the beginning of the new 12-year series of coins from the Royal Canadian Mint based on the Chinese lunar calendar. Each zodiac animal gets a chance to shine on these precious keepsakes, which are issued annually to commemorate the start of a new lunar year.

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. 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.

To mark the Year of the Tiger, the reverse design by Canadian artist Lily Kao features a stylized depiction of a cloth tiger, a popular form of Chinese folk art that carries a wish for prosperity. This Tiger is a symbol of courage and power, and it is also intended to ward off evil. Its big eyes, grinning mouth and prominent head give it an air of innocence and playfulness, while the markings on its forehead form the Chinese character for "King". The reverse also includes the Chinese character for "Tiger", the word "CANADA", the year "2022" and the face value, "15 DOLLARS". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
