In commemoration of the 2019 Chinese New Year, the Royal Australian Mint presents the Year of the Pig gold investment series, exclusively distributed by PAMP. Celebrated by the Chinese for its symbolic properties of compassion, generosity and intelligence, the pig is also strongly associated with wealth and abundance.
The coins of the series are rendered and struck in high detail by the Royal Australian Mint and are uniquely suited for both gift-givers and investment enthusiasts alike. The truly exceptional coin design is richly detailed and crafted in 99.99% fine gold with an uncirculated bullion finish.
The reverse design features a detailed rendering of a happy and carefree pig at play, as it runs through a puddle of mud, and the Chinese character ‘猪’, which translates as ‘pig’ in English. The top of the reverse design features the year ‘2019’, while the bottom features the coin’s metal weight and fineness. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the text ‘ELIZABETH II’, ‘Australia’ and the face value of the coin – all of which are encircled by depictions of the 12 signs and moon phases of the Chinese Zodiac.
