Perth Mint's Australian Lunar Series II collection epitomizes the rich tradition of minting spectacular bullion coins by portraying Chinese themes. The reverse design changes each year based on the Chinese lunar calendar, and the 2019 reverse celebrates the Year of the Pig. The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar pig include 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be honest, sincere and generous and have a calm temperament.
Known for their quality and collectibility, the Perth Mint Lunar series is a cornerstone of many Precious Metals portfolios. The original Lunar bullion series, these coins (beginning with the Series I launch in 1996) have become some of the most widely collected around the globe, as demand originated in Asia but spread to Europe and America as investors became exposed to the design and quality. In addition to the annual design change, many investors love that the coins' select mintage limits create the potential for even greater investment return in the form of a numismatic premium appreciation. This series is so popular, the 1 oz Gold and Silver Lunars are now instant sell-outs every year!
Making of the Perth Mint Lunar Pig Proof CoinsA beautiful new addition to this unique series, the 2019 Lunar Pig Proof is made with one troy ounce of .9999 fine Silver. The coins are struck with a strictly limited mintage of 300,000. Marking the Year of the Pig, the reverse is decorated with a loveable pig illustration, shown in a natural habitat. The artwork incorporates the Chinese character for pig and The Perth Mint’s traditional "P" mintmark. Each sovereign coin is backed by the authority and integrity of the Australian government. The Perth Mint’s Lunar coins are sought-after collectibles throughout all continents.
Both investors and collectors view the Lunar series coins as essential to their portfolios. Each exquisite Silver coin contains a full ounce of Silver, so acquisition and storage are simple for anyone. Because mintage of this series is limited, with a new design released annually, many experts consider the Silver Lunar coins a must-have for any Precious Metals collector.
