The 1/2 oz Gold Australian Pig Coin is the largest of the four fractional weights and features an unlimited mintage. The coins are struck by the Perth Mint through the end of 2019 to meet the demand of investors.
On the obverse side of Gold Australian Pig Coins, you’ll find the image of the Gold Pig design from Ing Ing Jong. This design differs from the Silver Pig imagery with the use of just one animal rather than a family of pigs as found on the Silver Australian Pigs issued in 2019. The design on the gold coins includes “Year of the Pig” and the Chinese symbol for pig.
The reverse face of 2019 1/2 oz Gold Australian Pig Coin includes the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. While other major bullion coins from the Perth Mint are transitioning to Jody Clark’s fifth-generation design of the Queen, the Lunar Series II collection will conclude with the fourth-generation design to ensure all obverse designs in the collection have the same imagery.
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 and is Australia’s oldest operating mint. The mint is a state-owned entity of Western Australia and operates independently of the Royal Australian Mint.
