An Original Work of Art!
Designed by Chinese-Canadian artist Aries Cheung, this coin depicts the ever-positive Pig smiling despite being under a rain cloud. The image captures the essence of the animal’s character: courageous, resourceful, and confident no matter what it faces. Neither rain nor storm can keep a Pig down - s/he greets adversity with a smile and the will to forge ahead! Stylized swirls reminiscent of the animal’s corkscrew tail lend the image charm and movement. The Pig is flanked by the Chinese character for "Pig".
