Product Description

In Chinese mythology, the tiger is one of the four sacred animals representing the cardinal directions, with a strong association to the west and the autumn season. The other three guardians in this revered group are the Azure Dragon of the east, the Vermilion Bird of the south, and the Black Tortoise of the north. These mythical creatures are believed to protect and watch over the land and are commonly featured in various cultural and religious contexts. Today, you can find the 1998 1 oz Australian Gold Lunar Tiger Coins available online at BGASC.

On the obverse side of the 1998 Australian Gold Lunar Tiger Coins, you will find a right-profile bust of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This design, created by Raphael Maklouf in 1985, was featured for the final time in the series in 1998 and captures a timeless image of the Queen adorned with the George IV State Diadem.


The reverse side of the 1998 1 oz Gold Lunar Tiger Coin depicts a powerful leaping tiger. In Chinese culture, the tiger symbolizes strength, courage, and bravery, making it an iconic and inspiring image. The tiger’s portrayal encourages individuals to face obstacles with determination and fearlessness, embodying the spirit of this remarkable creature.


The tiger is one of the twelve animal signs in the Chinese zodiac, with each animal representing a year in a twelve-year cycle. People born in the Year of the Tiger are believed to inherit characteristics such as leadership, competitiveness, and a strong sense of justice, making it a highly auspicious sign in the Chinese zodiac.
