Two Different, Symbolic Designs!
Each of the two different Pig silver dollars features a meticulously engraved Grecian key border, a symbol of good luck and good fortune, around the outside edge of the coin. The wealth coin’s design depicts a large adult domestic pig standing atop a huge mound of gold coins and money bags, signifying wealth and prosperity, with its front hooves atop a square hole cash coin. The pig is a stacker - who knew?!?! The inscriptions WEALTH and 2019 YEAR OF THE PIG are indicated, along with The Perth Mint’s traditional "P" mintmark.

The wisdom coin’s design depicts a large adult domestic pig surrounded by traditional symbols of knowledge and learning, including scrolls of paper, Chinese brushes and a pot of ink, all of which represent wisdom. The inscriptions WISDOM and 2019 YEAR OF THE PIG are indicated, along with The Perth Mint’s traditional "P" mintmark.

The Island Nation of Tuvalu
Tuvalu, formerly known as the Ellice Islands, is a Polynesian island nation located in the Pacific Ocean midway between Hawaii and Australia. Its nearest neighbors are Kiribati, Samoa and Fiji. It is comprised of four reef islands and five true atolls. Its population of 11,992 makes it the third-least populated independent country in the world, with only Vatican City and Nauru having fewer inhabitants. It is also the second-smallest member by population of the United Nations. In terms of physical land size, at just 10 square miles Tuvalu is the fourth smallest country in the world, larger only than the Vatican City, Monaco and Nauru.

The first inhabitants of Tuvalu were Polynesian people, who arrived about 3000 years go. The islands came under Great Britain's sphere of influence in the late 19th century. The Ellice Islands were administered by Britain as part of a protectorate from 1892 to 1916 and as part of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands Colony from 1916 to 1974. In 1974 the Ellice Islanders voted for separate British dependency status as Tuvalu, separating from the Gilbert Islands which became Kiribati upon independence. Tuvalu became fully independent within The Commonwealth in 1978. with Queen Elizabeth II as titular head of state.

Because Tuvalu has few natural resources it has been dependent in recent years upon aid from larger, more developed nations, including Australia, New Zealand and the United States. The Perth Mint of Australia is officially commissioned by the government of Tuvalu to produce legal tender coinage for the island nation.
