  • Description:

    The Perth Mint started the Australian Lunar Series I since they were inspired by the Chinese zodiac calendar. The Chinese zodiac is one of the oldest fortune-telling systems based off of the year someone is born. Along with fortune telling, the Chinese zodiac can also determine someone's strengths and weaknesses based off of the year they were born under. The pig is known to eat, sleep in its own filth, and become fat with each passing day. The positive side of the pig is that it doesn't try to harm anyone, keeps to itself, and can bring luxury into someone's life. In ancient times, the pig was a symbol of wealth. People born under the year of the pig are optimistic, honest, and calm. They are loyal to their friends and are humble about their strength.

    On the reverse, a wild pig is pictured in all its glory. The friendly beast is looking to its side, standing on what looks like its bed. The pig's detailed hair and face make this coin worth the while. The reverse is also kindly stamped with the coin's date of mintage, weight, and purity for extra comfort. The magnificent depiction of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse, along with the coin's legal tender value and place of mintage. Many sculptors wished to hide the Queen's aging appearance but Ian Rank-Broadley wanted to celebrate the Queen's maturity and give the aging process the respect it deserves. The silver pig weighs 10 ounces of pure silver and comes in a mint sealed capsule for protection. The pig is known to be last to finish an ancient race so it is also the last to finish the Chinese zodiac calendar. Discover what coin collectors and investors have been interested in all these years. The Australian Lunar Series I gives you more than just a quality product, it gives you something beautiful to take pride in for years to come!
