The Monetary Authority of Macau proudly presents the Macau Lunar Tiger Coins, exclusively minted by The Singapore Mint. The Macau Lunar Tiger coins are the 3rd issue of the new lunar coin series (2020 – 2031), which follows the success of the previous Award Winning series. The 4th Lunar Coin Series demonstrates the characteristics of Macau's World Heritage Sites and showcases the unique blend of Macau’s Chinese and Portuguese culture through the tasteful design elements and innovative craftsmanship.
The obverse design of the coin features a mighty tiger, majestically portrayed with a vibrant display of orange coloured Portuguese-inspired patterned tiles. Embellishing the background are lotuses, the city flower of Macau, adding to the intricacy of the coin design. The accompanying text 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 in Macau, in high relief minting technique. The St Lawrence’s Church stands on a hillside and its churchyard is raised from the street level. A neo-classical structure, the main façade 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. Presented from a low angle perspective, the presentation immerses collectors, revealing the majestic sight of the church as one takes the iconic stairs leading towards the main entrance.
The 5 oz silver coins are each embedded with a sparkling Swarovski crystal, and the gold coins are each embellished with an exquisite gold Swarovski crystal ring, creating a dazzling collection!
