PREVIOUS COIN SOLD OUT! Our most affordable Year of the Pig coin, an ideal gift! Order today!

Warm-hearted, resourceful and kind, the virtuous Pig is the 12th sign of the Chinese zodiac and is known for its optimistic outlook on life. Your pure silver coin celebrates all who are born in the Year of the Pig, for they are naturally inclined to be happy, even-tempered, and carefree! Confidently trotting across the coin, the diligent Pig generally keeps calm when encountering challenges big and small, and will happily lend a hand wherever needed—because that’s what a loyal friend does. The resourceful Pig is also generous, and trusting to a fault: the Pig believes in being open and honest with everyone, so it can be hard to accept that someone may be less than sincere. Luckily, the ever-playful Pig has a forgiving heart and isn’t known to hold a grudge; it’s just a smart, peace-loving soul who wants everyone to get along!

Design:

Designed by artist Simon Ng, your coin features a stylized depiction of the happy-go-lucky Pig trotting along beneath the Chinese character for Pig. Artistic flourishes convey the animal’s warm and positive character, as well as its traditional association with friendship and confidence. Wherever it goes, the Pig carries luck in the form of the stylized hydrangea and daisy found within the Pig’s rounded shape, along with an auspicious lotus flower on its cheek. The Pig’s integrity, generosity, loyalty and optimism give it strength for its journey, but a second lucky daisy atop the traditional Chinese latticework may also double its fortunes. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Those born in 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019 fall under the Chinese zodiac sign of the Pig—but the Chinese New Year shifts annually due to the Spring Festival. This impacts the zodiac sign for people born prior to February 6, 2019 or after January 24, 2020.
  • Famous Pig personalities include former Prime Minister; Kim Campbell , Formula One winner; Jacques Villeneuve, Painter; Stanley Cosgrove, and Entertainer; Bryan Adams
  • Highly imaginative and creative, the Pig tends to follow its heart when it comes to choosing a career, although it may thrive in entertainment or hospitality industries.
  • Kind-hearted and comfort-seeking Pig gets along famously with the Goat, Tiger, and Rabbit, but may be easily slighted by the Monkey’s need to be constantly on the move, and may mistrust the Snake’s true feelings and intentions.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
