APMEX is Noting the Upcoming Lunar Year of the Pig
APMEX Lunar Year of the Pig products
Many times, a cartoon-like pig is used to depict the Chinese Lunar Year of the Pig, but the initial inspiration behind the Zodiac is a boar. APMEX bars and rounds in .999 fine Silver feature a boar grazing underneath peony with its offspring.
For the first time ever, we are also offering new Gold and Silver Foil Notes with floral print and geometric shapes to represent the gentle, but brave attributes of the Pig. Available in .999 fine Gold or Silver, these foil notes bring new options to the APMEX Lunar series.
The Chinese Zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao, is based on a 12-year cycle calculated according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar and relates to different animal signs. These signs are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. People born during a given animal's years are said to bear distinctive characteristics of that animal.
