Here’s a Coin You’ll Go Absolutely Hog Wild Over!

The Chinese Year of the Pig officially started on February 5, 2019 – or the year 4716, according to China’s traditional calendar. People born during this lunar cycle are thought to be optimistic, gentle, diligent and exhibit lots of compassion and generosity. If that’s you or someone you know, consider this fabulous Year of the Pig Silver Coin from Australia’s world-renowned Perth Mint.

The latest – and final – release in the Perth Mint’s Lunar Series 2, this legal-tender silver dollar is struck in full ounce of highly-pure 99.99% fine silver. Its delightful design shows a mother pig happily surveying her four piglets as they frolic amid clusters of stylized grasses. Below them an inscription reads “Year of the Pig” in stylized type while the Chinese symbol for “pig” floats serenely above the beaming mama pig.

Your 2019 Australia One-Ounce Silver Year of the Pig coin will come graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in Flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded coin will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has certified that it is an Early Releases (ER) coin, meaning that it was among the first struck by the mint and was verified within the first 30 days of issue. It will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with an exclusive Sydney Opera House label.

The Pig is the 12th sign of the Chinese Lunar calendar and occurs every 12 years, the most recent years being 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995 and 2007. Those born in a Year of the Pig include such celebrities as Nolan Ryan, Elton John, David Letterman, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Julia Andrews. If you collect lunar-themed coins, known someone born during the Year of the Pig or are a silver stacker looking to hog as much silver as you can, then this coin is for you!
