2019 50c CuNi tetra-decagon Unc Coin - Lunar Calendar - Year of the Pig

As 2019 ushers in the Chinese Lunar Calendar – Year of the Pig, this coin celebrates the considerate, responsible and optimistic people born under this Zodiac sign. Combining an artistic design with the tetra-decagon shape unique to this series, this coin will be a cherished souvenir for those who celebrate coins or Chinese customs.

HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE
The Chinese Zodiac, Sheng Xiao, has its basis in a twelve-year cycle. Each year is represented by one of twelve animals each with their own unique personality traits. These characteristics are said to be passed onto people born in that year. In 2019 we celebrate the Lunar Year of the Pig. Those who are born in this year are said to be both warm-hearted
and good-tempered.
The Chinese calendar also rotates through the elements of earth, fire, water, metal and wood as part of a larger 60-year cycle. Earth is the element for this Year of the Pig with people born in this year said to be particularly loyal, honest and gentle.

FEATURES AND DESIGN
• Unique tetra-decagon shape, exclusive to this coin series
• Coin’s reverse features an artistic design of pigs in a farm setting
• Coin’s obverse features Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II effigy sculpted by Ian Rank-Broadley
• Australian legal tender
