The 2019 Lunar Year of the Pig coin is the twelfth and final sign of the Chinese zodiac, before it begins anew with the Year of the Rat in 2020. The Royal Mint’s Shengxiào Collection combines centuries of Chinese tradition with British minting craftsmanship, celebrating the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac, or Shengxiào, and their distinctive characteristics and qualities.

Lunar Year of the Pig
The pig is the last sign in the 12-year Chinese zodiac animal cycle. The pig is known for being kind, gentle, and calm when facing adversity. The year 2019 is the year of the Earth Pig, known for being communicative and popular. The zodiac sign combined with one of the five elements only comes once every 60-year cycle.

The coin's designer, Harry Brockway, ensured the characteristics of people born in the Year of the Pig translated into the coin's design, evoking the generosity and compassion of the pig. The country home, with smoke rising from the cozy fireplace inside, symbolizes the traits of calmness in conjunction with the night sky above the home. The mother pig with her children symbolizes family, loyalty and generosity.
