The 2019 release of Lunar Series II coins from the Perth Mint marks the Year of the Pig. Those individuals born under the sign of the pig should be proud to be associated with animals which, although known as sloppy creatures, are also very social, highly intelligent, and very inquisitive by nature.
Perth Mints Lunar Series II Australian Gold Pig Coins are available in eight different gold bullion weights, with three options in the proof gold range as well. The bullion coins include four fractional weights, a 1 oz weight, 10 oz weight, and 1 Kilo weight in addition to this 2 oz Australian Gold Pig Coin.
On the reverse face of the 2019 2 oz Australian Gold Pig is the image of a single pig. This intelligent creature is depicted in a right-profile relief with its snout and head looking upward, with its ears perked up. The background elements include a tree branch reaching into the design field from the left, with rocks and grass at its feet.
The obverse of 2019 2 oz Australian Gold Pig Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is envisioned in this design by Ian Rank-Broadley who created the image in 1998 for British and Commonwealth coins.
All 2019 Australian Gold Pig coins have unlimited mintage figures, with the exception of the 1 oz option. Unlimited mintage figures mean the mint will strike the coins to meet demand, but only through the end of 2019. These 2019 2 oz Australian Gold Pig coins are available only for individual purchase inside of protective capsules.
