  • ANNOUNCING ROYAL AUSTRALIAN MINT’S LUNAR – YEAR OF THE PIG BULLION COIN

    PAMP is pleased to announce a new bullion coin release – the Lunar - Year of the Pig gold investment series.

    Issued by the Royal Australian Mint and exclusively distributed by PAMP, the new fine gold investment series commemorates 2019 as the Year of the Pig in Chinese culture. The pig is celebrated by the Chinese for its symbolic properties of compassion, generosity and intelligence, and for its strong association with wealth and abundance. The Year of the Pig is believed to signify a year of peace, joy, and great financial prosperity.

    Expertly crafted by the engravers of the Royal Australian Mint, the coin’s captivating and original reverse design features a richly detailed rendering of a pig at play in a puddle of mud. The Chinese character ‘猪’, which translates as ‘pig’ in English is pictured at the left of the pig. The top of the reverse design features the year ‘2019’ while the bottom features the coin’s metal weight and fineness.

    The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the text ‘ELIZABETH II’, ‘Australia’, and the face value of the coin – all of which are encircled by depictions of the 12 signs and moon phases of the Chinese Zodiac.

    The exceptional new release is 99.99% fine gold and is available in 5 variations of weight: 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, 1/10 oz and 1/20 oz.

    Exclusively distributed by PAMP, the new Year of the Pig gold investment series is uniquely appealing for both gift-givers and bullion enthusiasts alike.
