The obverse of the coin features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the year of issue (2010), and the denomination of $2.
This features a powerful Siberian Tiger mid-stride as it runs through the snow against the snow clad backdrop of Northern Russia. This image is surrounded by a classic border design and engraved heading.
The lunar year of the Tiger coin is struck from 1oz of pure silver. No more than 20,000 coins will be issued by the New Zealand Mint. The coins are legal tender of the Government of Pitcairn Island.
Each coin is presented in unique packaging featuring a 3-dimensional Tiger paw print in the snow molded into the lid. This is in turn enclosed within an outer box decorated with a Tiger print design.
Each 1oz Silver Coin Comes with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity issued by New Zealand Mint.
