In 1996, Australia’s Perth Mint began a series of gold coins celebrating the Chinese zodiac. The inaugural Year of the Mouse began a 12-year cycle featuring a new animal each year. The first 12 years were called the Lunar I Series. In 2008, the 12-animal cycle restarted to create the Lunar II Series.
These incredible gold coins celebrate the Year of the Pig, one of the 12 animals in the ancient Chinese 12-year zodiac cycle. The birth years 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 the Pig are said to be sincere, loyal, and calm when facing adversity. Masterfully struck from .9999 fine gold, this 2 oz Gold Lunar Year of the Pig coin is issued as Australian legal tender and bears a face value of 200 Australian dollars.
The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. “2019”, “200 dollars”, and the weight and purity are also engraved on the obverse of each coin.
The reverse of this 2 oz Gold Lunar coin features a sow standing among beautiful foliage. The Chinese character for “pig”, “Year of the Pig” and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark are inscribed around the image.
