The Royal Australian Mint completed its twelfth release of the Chinese Year $1 coins in 2018 with the release of the Year of the Dog coin. They are now starting the series again in 2019 but in a three coin set with the first set being for the Year of the Pig.
With this set of coins the RAM celebrates 2019, the Lunar Year of the Pig, which is the twelfth and final sign of the Chinese lunar zodiac. Anyone born under this sign are said to be warm-hearted, good-tempered and loyal. Each design features a happy pig with a Chinese coin depicting either Fu (Happiness), Lu (Wealth) or Shou (Longevity), and surrounded by lucky hydrangea blooms.
This particular coin in the three coin set features the Happy Pig sitting with the Chinese Coin for Fu (Happiness).
