Description

The Water Tiger coin consists of more than 2.8k tiny mirrors that are reminiscent of water droplets. At the heart of the reverse, there is an image of a majestic tiger head made of those mirrors. When the coin is turned, each tiny silver mirror dot reflects the light – just like the surface of the water twinkles on a sunny day.

 

The obverse contains a portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II. An advanced minting technology – relief – was used to manufacture the coin, making it unique and proving its premium quality. A special coating was also used to protect the coin against wear. Each coin is sold in a special wooden box.
