The United Kingdom's only official Chinese Lunar coin for 2019 is here with the 2019 Great Britain Lunar Year of the Pig 1 oz Gold Coin!
Each coin is struck from extra-pure .9999 fine gold. In terms of actual gold weight (AGW), each coin contains 1 troy ounce of fine gold content.
These coins also bear a legal tender face value of 100 Pounds.
The image, designed by artist Harry Brockway, shows a large mother pig laying on her side as her five little piglets are nursing. The Chinese character for "Lunar Pig" is placed to the bottom-left. An idyllic pastoral scene of a country manor appears in the distance, and an attractive wave pattern fills the background of the design. Inscriptions along the top rim read "YEAR OF THE PIG 2019" and "1 OZ FINE GOLD 999.9" in bold lettering.
On the obverse, Jody Clark's effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II facing right is used. Her Majesty wears a crown and is set against a finely detailed background pattern. Around the outer rim, inscriptions include the denomination "100 POUNDS," the Queen's name "ELIZABETH II," and abbreviations for the Queen's traditional titles, "D. G. REG. F. D." ("By the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith"). The edge is reeded.
Aside from its original design, the 2019 Great Britain 1 oz Gold Pig is noteworthy for the high quality of its gold content. It stands upon the stellar reputation of the Royal Mint (U.K.). Be sure to pick yours up for great pricing at Gainesville Coins today!
