2022 MACAU 1OZ SILVER YEAR OF THE TIGER PROOF 70 FR
LIMITED MINTAGE OF ONLY 8,000!
This silver proof coin celebrating the 2022 Year of the Tiger is a beautifully crafted work of art honoring the third animal symbol of the ancient Chinese zodiac and the legacy of Macau. As a former Portuguese colony, Macau’s historic center features an eclectic blend of Portuguese and Chinese architecture which led to its declaration as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005.
The obverse features a tiger rendered with bright colors and patterns borrowed from Portuguese tile designs. A stylized array of lotus blooms appear in the background in honor of the Macau city flower.
The reverse depicts the symmetrical towers of St. Lawrence’s Church, a stunning example of neo-classical style architecture and one of the three oldest churches located in Macau. Inscribed “1 OZ 999 AG” below, with “ST. LAWRENCE’S CHURCH” curving above in English, Chinese characters and Portuguese.
