Product Description

Celebrate 2019, the Year of the Pig, with this charming vignette of an intelligent, loyal and confident mother sow and her four piglets on this large, low mintage, one troy ounce pure silver dollar!

This large, impressive coins represents a tremendous value, struck in pure silver! The Perth Mint's Lunar Zodiac Series II coins are huge! At more than 45 mm in diameter, they are nearly 2 inches across! This beauty is made all the more desirable by the Mint's execution of this intriguing animal motif in pure silver! The Perth Mint refers to this as their specimen finish. It's much nicer than an ordinary coin - the mirrored design is highlighted on frosted, matte fields (or background). We would therefore refer to this as a "Reverse Proof" or "Reverse Proof-Like" finish. Between the size and beauty of the finish, we think you'll be impressed with this affordable, pure silver dollarThe specimen finish or reverse proof silver dollars sell out quickly every year - we urge immediate action!
