2019 Royal Australian Mint Lunar Pig

The Royal Australian Mint has recently released their 2019 Lunar Pig Coins. On the their website  they say 'freshly minted designs', and what a fresh design it is. It may be considered one of the best designed lunar pig coins.

The pig design is the last of the twelve year lunar cycle. The next time we will see the lunar pig again will be in 2031.
The design shows a happy and optimistic pig with a Chinese coin behind it, which is surrounded auspicious symbols created by the mint. The Chinese coin represents luck and wealth.

The released coins come in both gold and silver, three in total with limited mintages and a proof finish. The silver coins comes in the availability of 1oz and 1kg whilst the gold coin is available in 1/4oz.
