The Swarovski SCS Tiger itself retailed for $450.

Like the SCS tiger, they were issued in the ‘golden shine’ color.


 SCS Tiger Cub, Sitting This Swarovski tiger cub was available to SCS members in 2010 as a  complimentary figurine to the SCS tiger. It retailed for $180 in 2010.

    I agree with you Julie. Swarovski should treat all SCS members the same.But who ever said anything was fair in this life.

    I like the tigers, shame they bring out one in another country though. If they make something 'special' it should be available to all members.
