According to the Chinese zodiac, 2019 is the Year of the Pig. This fine silver coin celebrates
traditional Chinese-Canadian culture and honours all who are born under the sign of the Pig —
an auspicious animal known for its playfulness, intelligence, loyalty and confidence!
The reverse image by artist Simon Ng features a stylized depiction of the happy-go-lucky Pig
trotting along beneath the Chinese character for Pig. Artistic flourishes convey the animal’s
warm and positive character, as well as its traditional association with friendship and
confidence. Wherever it goes, the Pig carries luck in the form of the stylized hydrangea and
daisy found within the Pig’s rounded shape, along with an auspicious lotus flower on its cheek.
The Pig’s integrity, generosity, loyalty and optimism give it strength for its journey, but a second
lucky daisy atop the traditional Chinese latticework may also double its fortunes. The obverse
features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED in ½ ounce of 99.99% pure
silver, this precious collectible celebrates traditional
Chinese-Canadian culture through a mix of classic and
stylized art elements on the reverse.
