2019 Great Britain 2-Pounds Year of the Pig .999 Fine Silver (No Tax)

The 2019 Lunar Year of the Pig coin is the twelfth and final sign the Chinese zodiac, before it starts anew with the Year of the Rat in 2020. The Royal Mint’s Shengxiao Collection combines centuries of Chinese tradition with British minting craftsmanship, celebrating the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac, or SHengxiao, and their distinctive characteristics and qualities.

The Pig is the last sign in the Chinese zodiac in the 12-year Chinese zodiac animal cycle. The Pig is known for being kind and gentle, and calm when facing adversity. The year 2019 is the year of the Earth Pig, known for being communicative and popular. The zodiac sign combined with one of the five elements only comes once every 60-year cycle.

The coin's designer, Harry Brockway, ensured the characteristics of people born in the Year of the Pig translated into the coin's design, evoking the generosity and compassion of the pig. The country home, with smoke rising from the cozy fireplace inside symbolizes the traits of calmness, in conjunction with the night sky above the home. The mother pig with her children symbolizes family, loyalty and generosity.
