The Singapore Mint is proud to present the 2022 Macau Lunar Tiger Coins, the 4th issue of the new Macau Lunar Coin Series (2020 - 2031) issued by the Monetary Authority of Macau.

The Singapore Mint is honored to be appointed as the official mint and exclusive agent responsible for the production and international marketing of this series.

The 2022 Macau Lunar Tiger Coin design reflects the unique blend of Macau's Chinese and Portuguese culture through tasteful design elements.

The obverse design of the coin features a mighty tiger, majestically portrayed with a vibrant display of orange colored Portuguese-inspired patterned tiles. Embellishing the background are lotuses, the city flower of Macau, adding to the intricacy of the coin design.  The accompanying texts are also thoughtfully arranged to resemble the Map of the Macau Peninsula.

The reverse design features the St Lawrence’s Church, one of the three oldest churches, located within the historic canter of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in a stunning angular perspective. A neo-classical structure, the main facade of the St Lawrence's Church has two symmetrical towers, one with a bronze bell and the other with a clock, giving the church a distinct solemn appearance.

Three-coin types are available for each design, in 1 oz and 5 oz Silver Proof Coin, and ½ oz Gold Proof Coin with Swarovski ring.
