History

Australian Lunar silver coin - Year of the Pig

The Chinese lunar calendar is today used by many for Taoist cosmology. It is believed that, depending on the year of the zodiac when a person is born, a special relationship exists between the person’s personality and the animal that constitutes part of the Chinese zodiac. The animals in the zodiac are supposed to be of a symbolic nature, where each animal is a representation of a specific group of characteristics and traits that can be found in every human being. There are twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac, each of them being celebrated once every twelve years. The year of the Pig was celebrated in 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019.

Those born in the year of the pig are considered to be persons who always show generousness and mercy to endure other people's mistakes, which help them gain harmonious interpersonal relationships. People with Chinese zodiac Pig sign are considerate, responsible, independent and optimistic. Though Pigs rarely seek help from others, they will not refuse to give others a hand. Pigs are diligent, compassionate, and generous.

Pigs might not stand out in a crowd. But they are very realistic. Others may be all talk and no action. Pigs are the opposite. They have great concentration: once they set a goal, they will devote all their energy to achieving it. They have a great sense of responsibility to finish what they are engaged in. General speaking, Pigs are relatively calm when facing trouble. No matter how difficult the problems are Pigs encounter, they can handle things properly and carefully.

However, sometimes they will behave lazy and lack actions. In addition, pure hearts would let them be cheated easily in daily life.

Inscribed below the effigy is the weight "1 KG", purity of the coin "9999 SILVER", the year of mintage, denomination "30 DOLLARS", and the designer’s initials “IRB” – Ian Rank-Broadley.

Reverse

The reverse of the coin features a proud sow with her four lovely piglets against a backdrop of beautiful foliage. The Chinese pinyin character for ‘pig’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Pig’ also appear on the reverse with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
