Year of the Pig
The “Year of the Pig” is the 12 animal in the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
In Chinese culture, those born under the influence of the Lunar Pig are believed to be diligent, compassionate and generous.
Those people with “Pig” personalities have a great sense of responsibility to finish projects they are engaged in.
The birth years of the Lunar Pig are 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, and 2019.
The front side of the coin depicts a Pig standing in a field of mud. The Chinese character for “Pig” is engraved on the right side of the motif. The year of issue “2007” is shown vertically on the left side near the edge. The fine weight and purity of “1 OZ 9999 GOLD” is inscripted below the Pig. There is also a circle of dots that decorates the outer edge on both sides of the coin.
The reverse side shows the right side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with crown. Below the Queens portrait are the initials “IRB”, which represent artist and engraver Ian Rank-Broadley. The inscriptions around the outer edge are the name of the regent “ELIZABETH II”, the country of origin “AUSTRALIA” and the nominal value of “100 DOLLARS”.
