While a lot of us celebrated the new year on January 1, many Asian countries and people with Asian heritage are waiting until February 1 this year to ring in the new year. The Lunar New Year, that is.
In 2022, we're celebrating the Year Of The Tiger. Each zodiac only comes around every 12 years, so you can do something special to commemorate it with one of the new limited edition coins from The Royal Canadian Mint.
The coins range in price from $59.95 to a whopping $105,000 for a one-kilogram pure gold coin. Here are all of the other ones you can buy this year.
This gold coin with the Year Of The Tiger design is a half-ounce one designed by artists Aries Cheung (tiger design) and Susanna Blunt (coin face). There were 1,888 minted in this design.
A much more affordable option is this silver coin, with the tiger side designed by artist Lily Kao. You can still get your hands on one of the 18,888 that were minted.
Another type of coin that you can get your hands on is this silver bullion coin. The bullion coins are made to be collected (not in circulation) and the coin itself doesn't have a design but it comes in this special Year of the Tiger packaging.
Like the silver bullion coin, this pure cold one also comes in a special Year of the Tiger package.
