  • Description:

    The Australian Lunar Series has been appealing to both silver and gold investors since 1996, when the first coin was minted. Since then, the Perth Mint ended the Australian Lunar Series I and began Australian Lunar Series II in 2008, which overlapped with Series 1 for three years. Combining the brilliant contrast of glossy proof finish with the frosted features of brilliant uncirculated, the Australian Lunar Series is the future of coin technology. The Perth Mint even secures each coin in their own protective capsule to ensure proper care.

    The Pig is the twelfth year of the Chinese Zodiac calendar. Legend has it that the Jade Emperor decided the placement of the animals depending on the order they arrived to his party. He stated that pigs are always late because they oversleep. Another rendition, that collaborates with a familiar tale, is that the wolf destroyed the pig's house and it has to rebuild before going to the party. Either way, these stories don't reveal the positive characteristics of those, who are born during the Year of the Pig. The actual years for the pig are: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019. Those born under the Year of the Pig are known to be enthusiastic and energetic, even for a boring job. They can be materialistic but they are also aware that they need to work hard to enjoy materialistic things.
