Product Code

According to legend, the Jade Emperor announced a Great Race to establish the order of the twelve signs of the Zodiac. At the end of the race the animals had to cross a fast-flowing river to take their place in the Zodiac.

The confident Tiger was a likely contender to win, but kept getting swept downstream by the strong currents. Showing the determination and strength synonymous with those born under the sign, the Tiger finally made it a shore after the Rat and the Ox.

People born in the Year of the Tiger are said to be brave, charming and well-liked. Famous Tigers include Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II actors Torn Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio, performer Lady Gaga and Australia's 'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin.

  • First coin depicts the powerful and charming Tiger
