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 thilarge yet affordable one troy ounce, pure silver dollar, selectively enhanced with 24-karat gold!

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 these intriguing animal motifs in pure silver, artistically rendered in an unique, reverse proof finish with highlights in pure, 24-karat gold! The gilded design is highlighted on frosted, matte fields (or background), further enhancing an already handsome design (which is even nicer looking than the mint-supplied images suggest). Between the large size & the beauty of the design, gold-plating and finish, we think you'll be impressed with this affordable, pure silver dollar!
