These magnificent gold coins celebrate the Year of the Pig, one of 12 animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. 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.
The Perth Mint will produce no more than 30,000 1oz coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first. Due to the low mintage of the 1oz size it is highly collectable and is sure to sell out fast.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold, 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, the monetary denomination, and the weight and fineness are shown on the obverse of each coin.
Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
