5oz Lunar Pig 2018 Silver Coin
These magnificent silver coins celebrate the Year of the Pig, the 12th animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
No mintage limit applies to 1 kilo, 10oz, 5oz, 2oz and 1/2oz coins. Except for the 1 kilo release, production of these coins will close at the end of 2016 when The Perth Mint will declare each coin's official mintage.
Meticulously struck from 99.9% pure silver in bullion quality, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The reverse of each coin features a representation of a domesticated or pet pig, which are typically pink with black markings, along with four piglets, amid stylised foliage. The Chinese character for ‘pig’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Pig’ appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2019 year-date, the monetary denomination, and the weight and fineness are shown on the obverse of each coin.
