In the traditional Chinese calendar, the Year of the Tiger is the third in a cycle of twelve years named for the ancient system of Zodiac signs. An ancient mythical account explains its position by means of a race among the animals. Tiger, the King of the Jungle, was convinced that his speed and vigor would carry the day, but when he crossed the river that marked the race’s finish line, he was in for a surprise. Rat had placed first thanks to his cunning, and Ox had placed second thanks to his diligence. Though Tiger was forced to settle for third place, his great qualities were undiminished, and are celebrated with an extraordinary pure silver collectible in the current year bearing his name: the 2022 1 oz Fiji Silver Year of the Tiger Dice Coin.

According to traditional Chinese astrology, people born in a certain Year are also likely to have the qualities of that year’s eponymous Zodiac animal. In the case of the Year of the Tiger, the associated personality traits are vigor and ambition, courage and daring, generosity and enthusiasm. Tigers are self-confident, passionate in their interpersonal relationships, and committed to justice and to working toward the greater good.
