A cute pig smilesThe Year of the Pig
Those born in the years 1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, and 2019 celebrate the Year of the Pig. According to tradition, people born during a Year of the Pig are said to exhibit that animal’s attributes. At first glance the personality of the pig might appear unrefined, but scratch the surface and you'll find a heart of gold. Pig people are honest, loyal, sincere and generous, with a calm temperament. A person born in the Year of the Pig is one of the most kind and loyal friends you could ever hope for. You can turn to this friend when things get tough. Eternally helpful, the Pig is an excellent listener and with take up your cause with incredible resolve. Even if you're in the wrong, he won't have the heart to tell you. After all, the peace-loving pig hates a quarrel!

Three Different Coin Sizes
This set contains three different Chinese Lunar Zodiac coins, each a different size:

 • 1/2 Troy Ounce Silver Proof- A very popular size, the one-half troy ounce pure silver proof is a large 36.60 mm in diameter - nearly the same size as a classic U.S. silver dollar! The denomination is 50 cents.
 • 1 Troy Ounce Silver Proof - This very popular denomination, with a one dollar face value, may also be available singly. (Click here for Pig Proof Silver Dollar.)
 • 2 Troy Ounces Silver Proof - This large and impressively-sized silver proof is available only in this set! It is not available individually or separately, we are sorry. The denomination is 2 dollars.

All three coins are struck to the most exacting, proof standard, the highest quality of finish available. The fields are deeply mirrored, with the design accented in varying degrees of frosty white cameo relief.

Obverse
Each coin depicts a domesticated mother sow and her four piglets living the good life on a farm. The legend YEAR OF THE PIG defines the theme. The Chinese character for "Pig" is above the adult, while the Perth Mint's "P" mint mark is judiciously placed to the right, near the 3:00 position along the rim.
