The coins of the Rwandan Lunar Ounce collection have a unique obverse design element. Included in each new release is a “cracked glass” appearance that overlays the entire design field, including the Year of the Pig imagery. This feature is used only on the obverse of the coin and not its reverse field.
All 2019 1 oz Silver Rwandan Lunar Pig Coins are available as either bullion specimens or proof coins. While the proof version has a set mintage cap at 1,000 coins, these bullion coins will be struck from September 1, 2018 until the last day of the calendar year in 2019 (Dec. 31).
On the obverse side of 2019 Silver Rwandan Lunar Pig Coins, you’ll find the image of a new design for the series. The Year of the Pig imagery includes a large sow, or female pig, laying on its side as it feeds a group of three small piglets.
The reverse face of the 2019 1 oz Silver Lunar Pig Coin includes the official seal of the Republic of Rwanda. The coins in this series are backed by the Central Bank of Rwanda, which has its name inscribed along the top rocker while the name of the nation is included along with the face value of the coins. Engravings on this side are in one of the two native languages of ancient tribes from Rwanda, Kinyarwanda.
