- The series of the Chinese Calendar which shows each year a new animal
- 2019 : the year of the pig
- An innovative striking method with high relief, the engraging reaches up to 15 times its regular height
The series features each year the Chinese calendar animals.
Chinese astrology is based on a 12 years cycle, represented by twelve animals. The 2019 year is the year of the pig.
On the obverse, surrounded by a pattern inspired by Chinese traditional arts, the pig flies out from the middle of the coin. The wording « Year of the Pig » surrounds the design. An ideogram realized by a Chinese Calligraphy Master is also displayed.
On the reverse we can find the twelve animals that constitute the Chinese zodiac displayed on a traditional screen alongside a Chinese temple door. The one the pig used to go “through” the coin!
