Story

Sincere lunar pig

Easy-going, sincere and calm under pressure are character traits said to be present in people born under the sign of the pig in the years 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019.

Year of the pig in coloured design

Finished in vibrant colour this gold coin depicts a superbly detailed domesticated pink pig with black markings amid stylised rocks and foliage including a peony, known as the flower of riches and honour.
The Chinese pinyin character for ‘pig’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Pig’ also appear on the reverse with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
