In 2019, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Pig, the twelfth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar Pig include 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019.
Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be honest, loyal, sincere and generous, with a calm temperament.
This beautiful Lunar coin design features a representation of a domesticated or pet pig, which are typically pink with black markings, along with four piglets, amid stylised foliage. The Chinese character for ‘pig’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Pig’ appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure silver, this stunning set comprises a 1/2oz, 1oz and 2oz silver coin and has a limited mintage of 1,000 sets worldwide. Each coin is issued as Australian legal tender and comes housed in a stylish red and black presentation case with a themed shipper, and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
A fantastic keepsake or gift for those born in the Year of the Pig.
