In 2019 we celebrate the Lunar Year of the Pig. Those born under this Zodiac sign are said to be warm-hearted, good-tempered, considerate, responsible and optimistic people. These characteristics are said to be passed onto people born in that year.
The Chinese Zodiac, Sheng Xiao, has its basis in a twelve-year cycle. Each year is represented by one of twelve animals each with their own unique personality traits.
The Chinese calendar also rotates through the elements of earth, fire, water, metal and wood as part of a larger 60-year cycle. Earth is the element for this Year of the Pig with people born in this year said to be particularly loyal, honest and gentle.
This 1/4oz gold coin celebrates the beautiful and joyous nature of this most auspicious and affluent Lunar animal.
