The 1 oz silver coin in the Lunar Series II collection is often the best-selling product in the series.

Each 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Lunar Pig Coin you can buy here today comes with a near-perfect grade from the NGC. A Mint State 69 coin exhibits full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Only certain flaws are acceptable at this level. To qualify, coins must exhibit only minuscule contact marks or hairlines and those flaws must be located outside the primary focal points of the coin.
The 1 oz Silver Australian Lunar Pig Coin has a mintage cap of only 300,000 in total. While other coins will be struck to meet demand, once these 300,000 coins are gone there are no more coming from the Perth Mint.
On the obverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Lunar Pig Coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty holds the unique title of Queen of Australia as the head of the Commonwealth, and this is the fourth-generation British effigy of the Queen created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The continued use of the Broadley design is unique for the 2019 Lunar Series II coins as all other silver bullion coins, such as the Kookaburra and Koala, now feature a distinctive sixth-generation design for Australian coins. The Perth Mint continued with this design to complete the Lunar Series II collection with all 12 coins featuring the same obverse design.
For the reverse of 2019 Silver Australian Lunar Pig Coins, the Perth Mint features a design that includes a mother pig with four small piglets. The mother pig stands in left-profile relief while the piglets are captured in various poses playing amongst the grass near her feet.
