Tiger year - 1/4 euro currency - 2022
The Chinese calendar series presents a new animal each year
2022: year of the tiger.
Third sign of the zodiac and the earth sign, the tiger is considered both courageous, fighting and powerful but also cruel, vindictive and terrifying. The tiger symbolizes power and loneliness. In the past, people often compared emperors and high dignitaries to this animal.
Surrounded by plum flower, a symbol widely used in Chinese history and art, as well as lanterns, the tiger is represented in a childish way. The tiger ideogram appears on the left of its representation. The vintage as well as the inscription "year of the tiger" appear at the top of the currency.
On the reverse, we find all the animals of the Chinese zodiac drawn in a childish manner left around the symbol of Ying and Yang. From 2018 until 2029 is a complete cycle of the Chinese zodiac. Each of these twelve years therefore highlights an animal from this calendar. The facial value is visible in the center of the cut and the mention "RF".
