CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Year of the Tiger Rotating Charm

The Tuvaluan Dollar is the currency of Tuvalu - a small nation in the Pacific Ocean. Tuvalu has never had banknotes of its own, and has been issuing coins since 1976; these circulate together with coins of the Australian Dollar, which is also legal tender in the country, and to which the Tuvaluan Dollar is pegged.

The Australian Perth Mint issues a large variety of non-circulating legal tender coins under the authority of Tuvalu. Some of these are in the silver ounce format (abbreviated as 1 oz). Strictly speaking, they are not bullion as they are priced at a premium and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic merit and collectable value and not just for their precious metal content.

This coin is part of a series dedicated to the Chinese Lunar Year of the Tiger 2022.

The Mint says about it:
Determined, courageous, and confident, the tiger is said to bestow many positive characteristics on people born during its years of influence - including 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 and 2022. The release incorporates a tiger-shaped 18-carat gold-plated sterling silver charm which rotates on a pin holding it securely at the coin’s centre.
