In 2019, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Pig, the twelfth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar Pig include 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be honest, loyal, sincere and generous, with a calm temperament.
