The unlimited mintage of 1/2oz Perth Mint Bullion Lunar Pig gold coins. The design of the coin is a domesticated or pet pig, which is pink with black marking typically, four piglets around it, between stylised rocks and foliage including a peony flower. It celebrates this social, inquisitive and highly brainy animal.

The design also incorporates the Chinese character for ‘pig’, the inscription ‘Year of the Pig’ and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2019 year-date, the weight and purity, and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of each coin.

The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar dog include 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be easy-going, sincere, loyal, generous and calm under pressure.
