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 proof finish, one troy ounce pure silver dollar with a very low mintage limit and FULL COLOR!

This large, impressive coins represents a tremendous value, struck in pure silver! The Perth Mint's Lunar Zodiac Series II coins are huge! At nearly 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, artistically rendered in full proof finish! The fields are deeply mirrored, with the design accented in frosty white cameo relief, further enhancing an already handsome design (which is even nicer looking than the mint-supplied images suggest). Between the large size, low issue limit (only 8,500!), and the beauty of the design and proof finish, we think you'll be impressed with this affordable, pure silver dollar!

Release Note - Please note that this Year of the Pig Silver Dollar with Color is NOT the same coin as the one included with the Year of the Pig 4-Coin Silver Type Set. This is a different coin which features a full proof finish.
