Pink Diamond Jeweled Tiger Leaps onto Rare Perth Mint Coins

(PRESS RELEASE) As one of the most powerful animals in Eastern culture, the majestic tiger has been immortalized in rare Argyle pink diamonds on The Perth Mint’s most significant release for 2020.

The opulent Jeweled Tiger coin is crafted from 10oz of 99.99% pure gold and adorned with a finely sculptured three-dimensional 18 carat rose gold tiger pavé set with nearly three carats of fancy vivid intense pink diamonds from Rio Tinto’s famed Argyle Diamond Mine. In contrast to its warm hue, two vibrant green Columbian Muso Emeralds represent the eyes of the mighty animal.

Surmounting the coin, the tiger is presented with a fierce expression to display its dominance as it ascends a stylized rocky outcrop of mountain ranges with oriental foliage. The design is headed by the inscription THE JEWELED TIGER and includes the Chinese character for ‘tiger’.

Native to many mountainous regions across Asia, the tiger is believed to be the ruler of all beasts and ‘king’ of the mountains.

Renowned for its power and beauty, the tiger shares the symbolic virtues of gold, so it was a natural choice to feature this revered creature on such a sophisticated release said Perth Mint Chief Executive Officer Richard Hayes.

“This limited edition commemorative is truly exceptional in terms of its artistry, rarity and value,” Mr Hayes said.

The Jeweled Tiger is the third release from The Perth Mint’s range of diamond studded coins showcasing Asia’s revered mythical and mortal creatures.

“Our 2018 Jeweled Phoenix and 2019 Jeweled Dragon coins sold out within weeks of their respective release dates. We expect the Jeweled Tiger will be similarly sought-after among the world’s diamond connoisseurs and collectors of luxury items.”

Recognizing the significance of the number eight in Asian cultures and its association with luck and prosperity, only eight Jeweled Tiger coins will be issued by The Perth Mint, each presented in a luxurious display case with 18 carat gold furnishings inset with two additional Argyle pink diamonds.

This rare Australian collectable features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2020 year-date on its obverse.

Priced at $259,000 (incl GST), the Jeweled Tiger coin is available for purchase instore or online. Find out more by visiting perthmint.com/thejewelledtiger, by telephoning (+61 8) 9479 9936 or emailing masterpieces@perthmint.com.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
