Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse side of the 2019 British Lunar Year of the Pig 1 oz Gold Coins. Her Majesty is shown here in the latest fifth-generation effigy for British coins and is shown in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. Inscriptions around the design elements include 100 Pounds, Elizabeth II, and D.G. Reg F.D. The entire background field of the obverse has a guilloche design element, a newly-introduced background element that helps deter counterfeiting.


A family of pigs is shown in the reverse design element of the 2019 British Lunar Year of the Pig 1 oz Gold Coin. The sow lies on her side as a group of five young piglets nursing from the sow. In the background field, you will notice a quaint countryside cottage with smoke rising from the chimney as the sliver Moon and stars rise into the sky overhead. Inscriptions on this face include Year of the Pig, 2019, 1 oz Fine Gold 999.9, and the Chinese symbol for a pig.


The designs throughout most of the Shengxiao Series were created by Wuon-Gean Ho, a Chinese-British artist. Her works featured on all of the early releases in the series.
