Design:
To mark the Year of the Tiger, the reverse design by Canadian artist Lily Kao features a stylized depiction of a cloth tiger, a popular form of Chinese folk art that carries a wish for prosperity. This Tiger is a symbol of courage and power, and it is also intended to ward off evil. Its big eyes, grinning mouth and prominent head give it an air of innocence and playfulness, while the markings on its forehead form the Chinese character for “King”. The reverse also includes the Chinese character for “Tiger”, the word “CANADA”, the year “2022” and the face value, “15 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know?
  • Years of the Tiger: You’re a Tiger if you were born in 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 or 2022. In Chinese culture, the Tiger is considered to be an especially lucky symbol, but if you’re born under the Tiger sign, you can boost your luck with the numbers 1, 3 and 4.
  • A cloth tiger is more than just a toy. The Tiger is revered as the king of all animals, and as a Chinese symbol of courage and might, it is believed to have the power to ward off evil spirits. A cloth tiger is traditionally gifted to young children and represents a wish for their future happiness, health and prosperity.
