In 2019, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Gold 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.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, no more than 3,000 individual 1oz coins, 5,000 1/4oz coins, 4,000 1/10oz coins and 1,500 three-coin sets will be released in this packaging. The coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The reverse of each coin features a representation of a domesticated or pet pig, which are typically pink with black markings, amid stylised rocks and foliage including a peony flower. The Chinese character for ‘pig’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Pig’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2019 year-date and the monetary denomination are shown on each coin’s obverse.
Each individual coin and three-coin set is housed in an elegant oval-shaped display case, featuring a glossy timber-effect lid, and presented in a coloured themed shipper with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
