The New Zealand Mint’s fabulous Fierce Nature series of shaped coins continues with a second entry devoted to the Tiger, the largest living cat species in the world and one of the most spectacular predators ever to stalk the wilds. A solitary yet social predator capable of bringing down large prey, tigers range across wide areas needed to support their appetites and allow them to rear their young. Known both for their ferocity and their riveting grace and beauty — the qualities that once inspired William Blake’s poem about their “fearful symmetry” — tigers have captured the human imagination for generations, and this gorgeous shaped coin reminds us why. The 2022 2 oz Niue Silver Tiger Coin is now available from JM Bullion.

The arresting power, size, and strength of the tiger have made these great wild cats one of the most iconic wildlife species in human history, a subject of fascination for art and popular culture for generations, and often a symbol of royalty and power. Appearing as everything from a Zodiac sign in traditional Chinese culture to the subject of countless legends about “man-eaters” in India and a character in books, films, and even cartoons across the Western world, the tiger has never failed to capture our attention anywhere it can be seen. The Fierce Nature series from the New Zealand Mint brings its fearsome charisma to your coin collection.
The 2022 2 oz Niue Silver Tiger Coin is a beautifully shaped coin with detailed engraving, shipping in a windowed and themed display case with an individual Certificate of Authenticity to specify its unique number in this limited mintage. Each shipment is fully insured by the JM Bullion team against even the most remote chance of loss or damage en route.
The coin’s obverse side features an effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II to confirm it as legal tender. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “FIVE DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
The reverse side is an engraved visage of a tiger captured in extraordinary high-relief detail that brings out the finest nuances of its bristling fur, whiskers, and fierce eyes. Its mouth is open in the midst of issuing its characteristic threatening roar.
