AUSTRALIAN LUNAR SERIES II – 2019 YEAR OF THE PIG GOLD BULLION COINS
These magnificent gold coins celebrate the Year of the Pig, one of 12 animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be honest, loyal, sincere and generous, with a calm temperament. The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar pig include 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019.
A friendly pet pig features on the reverse of each coin surrounded by a peony flower, stylised rocks and foliage. Also features the Chinese character for ‘pig’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Pig’ 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.
