Were you born in the Year of the Pig?
1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019
People born in the Year of the Pig tend to be gentle, selfless and loyal as well as diligent, compassionate and generous.
The pig is the last sign of the Chinese zodiac, signalling the end of the cycle which starts anew in 2020 with the Year of the Rat. People born in the Year of the Pig are admired for their kindness and are among the gentlest and most selfless of the signs in the Chinese zodiac. Each sign in the lunar calendar celebrates the personality traits of people born in that year and the coin’s designer, Harry Brockway, has ensured the qualities of people born in the Year of the Pig are evident in his design.
Since 2014, The Royal Mint has celebrated the Chinese zodiac by releasing more additions to The Shēngxiào Collection. This year sees the Year of the Pig added to the collection which has beautiful fusions of British and Chinese heritage and craftsmanship with delightful designs. The Shēngxiào Collection celebrates the wonderful, age-old customs of the Chinese zodiac.
