Description

In the Chinese lunar calendar, the year 2019 is ruled by the Pig — a true diamond in the rough! The Pig also ruled 1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, and 2007. Though it may appear unrefined, the down-to-earth pig personality is associated with kindness and loyalty. An excellent listener, the pig will always support you. And if you’re wrong, he or she won’t have the heart to tell you. A lover of the good things in life who rarely holds a grudge, this peace-loving soul wants everyone to get along. On this coin, the friendly pig frolics among the lucky blossoms, ensconced within the unique scallop edging of our famed annual Lunar Series!

Design:

Designed by Three Degrees Creative, this scallop-edged coin offers a pleasing profile portrait of the smiling Pig. This depiction highlights the animal’s traditional character and associations in Chinese astrology: friendship, courage, confidence, and resourcefulness. In this treatment, the happy-go-lucky Pig is surrounded by a semi-circle of lovely good-luck blossoms. In the polished field above the central image is the Chinese character for “pig.”

Additional Information

Photos:  When an ebay listing offers multiples of the same coin (or set), one coin (or set) is picked at random and photographed.  Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered.

Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces.  However, tilting the coin may result in one side being slightly out of focus.  Please review all of the photos provided to obtain the best understanding of the coin’s actual appearance.

Our goal is to provide clear, high definition photos that accurately represent the coin(s) offered in each of our eBay listings.  Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint.  We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting.  We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.
