(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 [email protected].

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
