Legend has it that the 12 lunar-zodiac animals were selected by the Jade Emperor. He conducted a race of all the animals, and named the years in the order that they finished. The tiger finished third, behind the rat and ox. The Tiger is regarded as the "King of Beasts", and is known for being brave, sturdy and full of energy. Those born in the Year of the Tiger (1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998 or 2010) are said to be fearless, thoughtful, sympathetic and loving. According to the Chinese lunar calendar, 2010 is the year of Gengyin (Tiger), and people believe that it will bring happiness, luck, and great success for everyone.

Uniting an inspirational piece of numismatic design with the power of modern minting, this dramatic Silver Proof bears an innovative, highly symbolic portrayal of the Tiger – perfectly complemented with glorious full-colour!
An official legal tender commemorative from Macau (a Special Administrative Region of China), the large 65.0 mm flan of this exclusive 5oz .999 fine silver Proof is distinguished by a stylised design of a crouching tiger – contrasting beautifully against a dazzling full-colour depiction of the evergreen pine. An official issue of the Singapore Mint, each coin is housed in a plush case, complete with a Certificate of Authenticity attesting to the strictly limited mintage of 500.
