The 2019 1 oz Gold Australian Pig Coin is the only issue in the gold bullion series that has a limited mintage figure. The Perth Mint uses unlimited mintage to meet demand for its fractional weight and larger-weight coins, but the popularity of the 1 oz coin results in set mintage figures each year. No more than 30,000 1 oz gold coins will be struck for the 2019 Gold Australian Pig release.
All of these 2019 1 oz Gold Australian Pig Coins are available for purchase in one of three options. Individual coins are available for purchase within a protective capsule. Multiples of 20 are also available to you inside of sealed rolls from the mint, or you can purchase a sealed box of 100 coins split into five rolls of 20.
On the obverse side of 2019 Gold Australian Pig Coins is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This design was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley and captures the Queen around the age of 70. This is one of the last coins from the Perth Mint to feature this design as other major bullion coins from the mint transition to the latest-generation effigy from Jody Clark in 2019.
The reverse face of 2019 1 oz Gold Australian Pig Coins features Ing Ing Jong’s latest Lunar Series II design. This artwork depicts a singular pig standing amidst a natural setting, with a tree branch emerging from the left of the design field and grass sprouting at its hooves around a few rocks.
