The unique silver coin decorated with Czech crystal "Crystal Coin" represents the Chinese zodiac sign for the year 2022, which is the tiger.
The Eastern zodiac, also known as the Chinese zodiac, contains twelve signs - twelve animals that represent twelve temperaments with positive and negative traits. Unlike the classical horoscope we are used to in Europe, each of these signs belongs to a whole year, and once all the animals have been replaced, the twelve-year cycle begins again.. The year 2022 is dedicated to the third animal of the Chinese zodiac - the tiger. Why this beast? Legend tells of the Jade Emperor who ruled the heavens and sought someone to guard his palace. Twelve creatures - a rat, a buffalo, a tiger, a hare, a dragon, a snake, a horse, a goat, a monkey, a rooster, a dog and a pig competed for the emperor's favour. Their position in the palace was to be decided by a great race. The strong buffalo was the favourite, but little did he know that a cunning rat had settled on his back and jumped off just before the finish line, depriving him of the victory. The third to finish was the agile tiger... People who are born under the influence of the tiger are bold, charming, unbridled, confident and energetic. They love adventure and taking risks. They demand discipline, but can be disobedient themselves…
The reverse side of the coin, which is the work of the medal maker Petra Brodská, DiS., presents a stylised depiction of a tiger supplemented with decorative ornaments and nine crystal stones. The Czech-English inscription ROK TYGRA – YEAR OF THE TIGER is supplemented with the appropriate Chinese symbol. On the obverse side you will find all twelve animals of the Eastern Zodiac. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with the foreign licence of the State of Samoa, the obverse side bears its national emblem, the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the year of issue 2022 and the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (WST).
The coin is issued in a limited edition of 1000 pieces and represents an original gift for many occasions. It is stored in elegant packaging that can be simply transformed into a practical frame for display.
