Lunar Year of the Tiger CERTIFIED BU £5

The Tiger is a symbol of power and ‘king of the beasts’ in Chinese culture – known to be brave, confident and adventurous.

This year, The Royal Mint has released a BRAND NEW £5 coin celebrating the Chinese Lunar Year of the Tiger in Superior Brilliant Uncirculated Quality!

Third Chinese Lunar Year Base Metal £5

In 2019, The Royal Mint released the UK’s first-ever base metal £5 coin celebrating the first animal of the Chinese Zodiac – the Rat.

As a new year approaches, we now prepare to celebrate the third Chinese Lunar Year Coin with the latest release in this exciting series featuring the Tiger!

What makes this issue even more exciting is that this is the first coin from The Royal Mint to be dated 2022!

What’s more, as the only official UK coin to celebrate the Year of the Tiger, the reverse features original artwork created especially for this brand new £5.

Designed by David Lawrence, traits associated with people born in the Year of the Tiger strongly feature in this dynamic design.

Repeating once every twelve years, this is a beautiful fusion of British and Chinese tradition, not to be missed!
