The experts at the Lithuanian Mint have put their best effort into presenting all these tiger traits when they created this coin, which is a true masterpiece.
The Water Tiger unites two elements.
According to the Chinese calendar, 2022 will be the year of the Water Tiger. The Tiger is normally associated with earth, but next year it will unite two different elements. To underline this, the experts at the Lithuanian Mint have opted for solutions enabling them to focus on water symbolism.
The Water Tiger coin consists more of more than two thousand eight hundred small tiny dots - mirrors!
At the center of the reverse, there is an image of a majestic tiger head made of tiny dots - mirrors that are reminiscent of water droplets. When the coin is turned, each tiny silver mirror dot reflects the light - like reflections on the water on a sunny day.
The obverse contains a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The most advanced minting technology - relief - was employed to manufacture the coin, making it unique and proving its premium quality. A special coating was also used to protect the coin against wear. Each coin is sold in a wooden box.
