Lunar Series II picked up right where the Lunar Series I collection left off. The Perth Mint’s lunar series coins follow the exact 12-year cycle of the Zodiac, which starts with the Year of the Mouse and ends with the Year of the Pig. When the Lunar Series I collection ended in 2007, the Perth Mint launched a brand-new Lunar Series II collection.
The final year of availability for the Lunar Series II coins came in 2019 with the Year of the Pig designs. Created by Ing Ing Jong, these silver coins had a depiction of a family of pigs while the gold coins had the image of just one pig.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse face of all of the 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Lunar Pig Lion Privy Coins. This is the fifth-generation portrait of the Queen on Australian coins and was designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. This effigy was used for the final time on an Australian coin with the release of the 2019 Year of the Pig coins. Other bullion coins at the Perth Mint had switched to the Jody Clark design in 2019, but the mint maintained this design on the Lunar Series II collection all coins in the series from start to finish had the same obverse.
A sow and her four young piglets are featured in the reverse design element of the 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Lunar Pig Lion Privy Coin. Along with the mother pig and her piglets in this design field is a Lion Privy mark depicting an adult male lion with a large mane.
These 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Lunar Pig Lion Privy Coins are available to you for purchase with an individual protective plastic capsule or a sealed roll of 20 coins. Each individual coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
