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 magnificent gold coins salute the Year of the Pig, the last of the 12 animal signs in the ancient Chinese 12-year lunar calendar. 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 kind, loyal, and calm when facing adversity.
Intricately struck from .9999 pure gold, each 1 oz coin bears a face value of 100 Australian dollars. Due to the low mintage of only 30,000 for the 1 oz weight, they are sure to be highly sought after by collectors worldwide and will sell out fast. So don’t wait to order the 2019 1 oz Gold Lunar Pig coin today!
The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. “2019”, 100 dollars, and the weight and purity are also depicted on the obverse of each coin.
The reverse of this 1 oz Gold Lunar coin reflects a sow standing under a beautiful flower canopy. The Chinese character for “pig”, “Year of the Pig” and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark are featured around the image.
The Perth Mint is the largest refiner and distributor of precious metals in Australia, exporting around $18 billion worth of gold, silver, and platinum bullion annually worldwide. The Perth Mint is the only refinery in Australia that is accredited by the London Bullion Market Association and the major gold exchanges like the New York Commodities Exchange. This means that investors and collectors can confidently buy Perth products knowing that the mint’s strict quality standards ensure that each coin or bar is made to exact weight and purity specifications.
