People born in the Year of the Pig tend to be gentle, selfless and loyal as well as diligent, compassionate and generous.
This year, the Lunar Year of the Pig joins The Royal Mint’s Shēngxiào Collection. People born in the Year of the Pig are thought to have the most gentle, selfless and loyal traits amongst the signs in the Chinese zodiac.
Fusing British craftsmanship with ancient Chinese tradition, The Shēngxiào Collection began in 2014 and has been celebrated every year since, with each coin revealing the story of each of the animals of the Chinese zodiac in turn. Appearing only once every 12 years, this is a unique moment to celebrate the Year of the Pig and to immerse in ancient Chinese tradition.
