The Perth Mint established an unlimited mintage cap for the 2019 5 oz Silver Australian Pig Coin. The unlimited mintage figure from the Perth Mint means only that the mint will strike the coins as long as there is demand and only through the end of the 2019 calendar year. Silver Australian Pig coins are also available in proof, with three weights and a three-coin set available to collectors.
On the obverse face of 2019 5 oz Silver Australian Pig Coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has featured on British and Commonwealth coins in this fourth-generation design since 1998. Though the Perth Mint is adopting the new fifth-generation design in 2019 on other major bullion coins, the Lunar Series II coins conclude with the fourth-generation design to maintain continuity with other coins in the series.
The reverse of 2019 5 oz Silver Australian Pig Coins features a new design of pigs for the Year of the Pig. In keeping with the design of other silver bullion coins in the series, this design includes a family unit. There is an adult pig in the background with piglets in the foreground.
