Monster Box of 100 £2 British 2019 1 oz Silver Lunar Year of the Pig Coins

In recent years, lunar coins have become top choices among countless collectors worldwide. The Royal Mint entered into this recent tradition in the middle of the lunar cycle that ends in 2019 with the Year of the Pig, the sixth coin in the series. The pig has a reputation for being kind, gentle, and selfless, qualities that are captured in the exquisite design. Each of the coins in this Monster Box was struck from .999 fine silver at the British Royal Mint. The coins are part of a mintage of 138,888 pieces. The eights are a nod to the Chinese tradition of considering "8" lucky.

Traditional Farm Design by Harry Brockway

On the obverse is Jody Clark's right-side effigy of Queen Elizabeth II wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem that she traditionally wears to the State Opening of Parliament. The image is encircled by a pair of rim inscriptions, the coin's face value, "2 POUNDS," and the monarch's name and abbreviated title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith).

Harry Brockway's reverse design captures the traits that are associated with those who are born in the Year of the Pig: generosity, compassion, and diligence. In the foreground, a sow lies comfortable on the ground as her young feed. An artistic rendering of a country landscape at night is in the background. "YEAR OF THE PIG" joins "2019" and "1 OZ FINE SILVER 999" at the top, while the Chinese character for pig is included in the lower left. All of this is set against a background of radial lines.
