Obverse: The obverse is adorned with a right facing likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Surrounding inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REG. F.D." and "2 POUNDS." This fifth definitive effigy of the Queen was created in 2015 by sculptor Jody Clark. Mr. Clark is notably the first Royal Mint employee to be chosen to execute a monarchal coinage portrait in more than 100 years.
Reverse: On the reverse, a tiger boldly advances forward through rough terrain. In the distance, auspicious clouds appear over mountain peaks, with the Chinese character representing Tiger located at lower right. The inscription "YEAR OF THE TIGER 2022" sweeps above the wildlife image.
