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 in these years are said to be happy, easygoing, honest, trusting, educated, sincere and brave.
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!
2019 Lunar Gold Coins - The Year of the PigThe Perth Mint’s Lunar Series continues for 2019 with the release of the Australian Gold Lunar Pig 1 oz bullion coin. Released every year with updated imagery that coordinates with the governing animal of the Chinese New Year, these coins are a favorite among collectors and investors in many countries. Each Lunar Pig coin is struck from .9999 fine Gold. The enchanting Perth Mint Gold Lunar Series features animals from the 12-year cycle of the Chinese calendar. According to ancient philosophy, each animal has a significant influence over those born under its year of "rule."
Because of the quality and unique design, it has become fashionable for collectors to add new Australian Gold coins to their portfolio every year. Since these coins go beyond the borders of Australia in the appeal of the design, this series builds appeal with each release.
Depictions on the Lunar Pig 1 oz Gold Coin SeriesAccording to Australian law, all Lunar series coins must be struck with Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Initially, the series used a younger portrait of Her Royal Majesty, but in 1999, the artwork was updated to depict a more mature rendering. The Perth Mint strikes each Lunar Pig Gold coin from .9999 fine Gold in Proof quality.
The reverse of each Gold coin depicts an adorable pig design that appeals to animal lovers young and old. The Chinese character for pig is also used, as well as the inscription “Year of the Pig” alongside the Perth Mint’s traditional “P” mintmark. Legal tender authorized by the Australian Currency Act 1965, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is shown in the great Ian Rank-Broadley rendering. The year “2019” and the denomination are also included on each coin’s obverse.
The 2019 1 oz Gold Pig Proof is the 12th design of Australia’s Series 2 Lunar bullion coins.
