Details

A new series in .999 fine Silver celebrates the wildlife of India in a Cash bullion coin series.

The detailed engraving of the tiger, with the raised relief allows the design to stand out against a striking patterned background. With a limited number of coins available, be sure to be one of the few to own this .999 fine Silver coin.

With the Bengal Tiger being the national animal of India, it is only fitting to have the majestic animal as the first release of the Treasures of India Wildlife series. The Tiger has symbolized power, bravery and grace for centuries. In the 1970s, the Tiger became the national animal, with the initiation of Project Tiger, to protect the endangered species. Officially known as Panthera-tigris, the tiger is known as the lord of the jungle. The Tiger design on the coin is an original design by Veronica Mackinnon, and captures the elegant beauty of the animal. The "CASH" denomination shown on the coin is also one of historical significance. CASH coins were currency units used during the time of British rule in India. While the origin of the word "CASH" has been up to debate, one thought is that it was derived from the Sanskrit word "karsa", equaling a weight of Silver of Gold equal to 1/400 of a "tola".
