The Royal Mint in the U.K. was one of the early entrants into the commemorative Lunar coin market. The series is back again in 2019 with coin designs that honor of the Year of the Pig in the Chinese Lunar calendar.
Each 2019 Great Britain 1 oz Silver Lunar Pig coin is struck from .999 fine silver. Its pure silver content by weight is one troy ounce.
Its legal-tender face value is 2 Pounds.
The obverse design uses Jody Clark's updated effigy of Queen Elizabeth II facing right. The precise relief detail and brilliant surfaces of Her Majesty's portrait stand out against an eye-catching field that features a modified grid pattern.
On the reverse, a large sow is shown lying down on her side as she nurses her five piglets. The scene appears in the foreground of a picturesque pastoral setting surrounded by a distinctive finish resembling radiant waves of diffracted light.
This reverse design variety will only be minted for one year, and the Year of the Pig doesn't return until 2031. Moreover, this 2019 issue has a significantly lower mintage than most other government-issued bullion coins. Get yours from Gainesville Coins while these Royal Mint silver coins are still in stock!
