The 2019 Lunar UK Year of the Pig 1 oz silver coin is  the latest release in the successful Lunar Series by the reputed Royal Mint. The Lunar UK, or Shēngxiào Collection, has been a hit with collectors old and new since its launch of in 2014.

Based on the animals in the ancient Chinese lunar calendar, the pig is the 12th and final animal in the cycle and this beautifully designed .9999 silver coin captures its traits with flair. The coin also celebrates the increasing trade and cultural links between the UK and China.

The reverse of 2019 UK Lunar Year of the Pig coin shows a mother pig lying calmly with her piglets. In the distance, surrounded by gentle hills and trees, a rustic farmhouse complete with gently smoking chimney, evoking a tradition and continuity.

Each detail is meticulously crafted and superbly offset by a background of radiating lines that act as an extra security measure against counterfeit.

The obverse features the famous ‘fifth’ coinage portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.

Although the Year of the Pig Lunar UK silver coin represents the final stage in the zodiac cycle, it’s only the sixth in the Royal Mint’s prestigious Shēngxiào Collection. The series will continue with the Year of the Rat in 2020 and end with the Year of the Snake in 2025.

The Pig is seen to have a reliable and caring nature and is said to promote affluence. People born under the sign of the Pig are defined by their gentleness, loyalty and generosity. The Years of the Pig include 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043 and so on.

The 12 animals in the ancient Chinese zodiac include the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.
