Roll of 20 1 oz Silver 2019 £2 Great Britain Year of the Pig Lunar Coins

This Roll of 20 Silver Year of the Pig coins comes from the sixth issue of the Royal Mint's Shengxiao Collection. The series started in the middle of this Chinese zodiac cycle, which lasts twelve years. Although British lunar issues started later than those of some other mints, they have earned their place is in the psyche of collectors. These coins are part of a mintage of 138,888 pieces, a number that references the fact that eight is a lucky number in Chinese culture. Each coin was struck from one ounce of .999 fine silver. All of the coins in this roll remain in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Touching Sow Design by Harry Brockway

Queen Elizabeth II's right-side portrait by Jody Clark serves as the obverse design. On her head is the Royal Diamond Diadem that she dons for the State Opening of Parliament. Her name and an abbreviation of her Latin title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith) spreads throughout most of the rim, while the face value of the coin, "2 POUNDS," fills out the rest.

The reverse design by Harry Brockway displays generosity, compassion and diligence, characteristics that are associated with people who are born in the Year of the Pig. A sow rests on her side as her young drink her milk. In the background is an artistic rendering of a countryside at night, complete with a group of trees and a traditional home. The Chinese character for "pig" is inscribed in the lower left, while the name of the coin, "YEAR OF THE PIG," date, "2019," and weight and purity of the coin, "1 OZ FINE SILVER 999," are inscribed at the top.
