A one kilogram silver proof coin, marking the Year of the Pig from The Royal Mint’s Lunar series.

The Shēngxiào Collection

The Lunar or Shēngxiào collection is a twelve-year series from The Royal Mint, charting the cycle of the Chinese zodiac. Now in its eighth year, coins in this collection feature the animals associated with the lunar calendar, often with a distinctly British twist.

Released annually on Chinese New Year in gold, silver, proof and bullion editions, the series so far includes:

While these coins share a fascinating theme with similar Chinese and Australian series, The Royal Mint’s Shēngxiào coins are unique as legal tender in the UK. 

2019: The Year of the Pig

This 1 kg silver coin is part of the sixth release in this popular series though the pig is actually the final animal in the Chinese zodiac.

The design by artist Harry Brockway. His reverse shows a sow feeding five piglets. Family is important to those born under the pig and five is said to be a lucky number in Chinese culture. It’s a nighttime scene, the stars above referencing the zodiac, shining on a country cottage, surrounded by hydrangeas - another symbol of good fortune.

Brockway usually works in stone and wood and said about creating this design:

‘I enjoy the challenge of working within such strict parameters, combining image and lettering to produce a coherent and satisfying design.’

One Kilo Silver Coin

Brockway’s reverse is paired with Jody Clark’s portrait of Elizabeth II. The obverse flags the face value of this coin which is £500.

It’s from a limited edition presentation of just 38 and is struck to proof standard, ensuring a flawless finish across its 100.00 millimetre face. This piece weighs 1005.00 grams and is composed of 999 silver, making it the largest silver denomination offered in this series.

This one kilo coin is offered in its distinctive red packaging from The Royal Mint with its certificate of authenticity enclosed inside its wooden box.
