This Silver Lunar Year of the Pig coin is the latest release in the Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II. The coin features the latest “Year of the Pig” design. The Lunar Series I program was initially released to the public in 1999. The coin became uber-popular partially because it was (and still is) created by the one and only Perth Mint. The Lunar Series II commenced a decade ago with the release of the “Year of the Mouse”. Both Lunar Series have proven incredibly successful, partially because of Lunar coins’ stunning design, high purity and their unique depiction of the Chinese Zodiac character.
