The stunning second release in the new Four Auspicious Beasts series features the White Tiger. The White Tiger of the West and Autumn season is considered by the Chinese as the symbol of force and army.
Struck from 2oz of 99.9% pure silver using a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Max”, that combines 11.5oz of copper as a base for the top layer of fine-silver, resulting in a 80mm super ultra high relief coin.
The White Tiger is seen as a protector and defender, not just from mortal enemies, but from evil spirits. The White Tiger is one of the Four Auspicious Beasts of the Chinese constellations who are viewed as the guardians of the four cardinal directions.
The coin design features the White Tiger as the focal point on the reverse with its supporting elements and details such as metal. The title of the character and series is coloured in Gold while the obverse features the ancient Chinese constellation graph surrounding an octagon-shaped yin-yang as the backdrop for the legal tender.
