We are thrilled to offer this spectacular 2 kilo silver coin that celebrates the confident tiger and benevolent dragon. In Chinese culture, it is customary to portray the tiger alongside the dragon as an expression of yin and yang, the traditional belief that all things in the universe consist of two opposing yet complementary forces.
According to ancient philosophy, the beast’s wildly different spirits created a fierce rivalry. In challenging the dragon’s dominance, however, the tiger ensured the restoration of balance and harmony in the world.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 2 kilos of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
