In the United States, a significant number of private mints produce bullion which is not legal tender and is targeted at investors and not at coin collectors - such as this one.

This 1 oz Gold Bar dedicated to the 2022 Chinese Lunar Year of the Tiger was made by the Scottsdale Mint.

The Mint says about it:
There’s a new lunar tiger gold bar in town, and this one’s got bite! The lunar year of the tiger is the latest 1 oz gold bar from Scottsdale Mint in our Lunar New Year Gold Series. This ferocious feline is struck in .9999 fine gold and comes in a Certi-Lock sealed airtight capsule, and is the same design as our recently released 100 Gram Gold Tiger Bar.

The Lunar New Year is celebrated all over Asia, and is arguably the most important holiday celebrated in Chinese culture. The festival typically lasts for ten to fifteen days, with many businesses closed, and is a time for families to gather together and celebrate. The lunar calendar it comes from is based on the cycles of the moon, making it often shorter than the solar year. As a result, the lunar New Year can fall on any date between late January and early February. The lunar calendar is also used to determine the dates of other holidays, such as the Mid-Autumn Festival and the Dragon Boat Festival.

For many, the lunar new year is a time to reflect on the past year and set goals for the coming year. It is a time to celebrate family, friends, and community, and to honour the traditions and culture of China.

The lunar Tiger is an important symbol of the Lunar New Year, and it is believed that the Tiger brings good luck and prosperity. In Chinese culture, the Tiger is associated with courage and power, and it is believed that those born in a Year of the Tiger will be blessed with those qualities. The Lunar New Year is a time to celebrate new beginnings, and those born in the Year of the Tiger are said to be especially lucky.

Gold has always been associated with wealth and power, and in China, gold is also seen as a symbol of good luck. In ancient times, gold was used to make coins and other currency, and it was also used to decorate temples and palaces. Today, gold is still seen as a sign of prosperity, and it is often given as a gift to mark special occasions. Gold jewellery is also popular in China, and gold items are often used to decorate homes. It is said that gold brings good luck, so many Chinese people like to keep a few pieces of gold around their home.
