As winter days come around, we start feeling festive since we become aware that the holiday season is almost here. Of course, one of everyone’s favourite holidays is New Year’s Eve. This is the night we are looking forward to and many of us even start questioning ourselves whether the current year has been productive enough and whether we have realized all the plans we made a year ago. In addition to this, we are also trying to find the best presents for our loved ones. In case you have run out of ideas, we are here to help you with that – a particular coin that the Canadian mint has to offer.
A coin that celebrates the Year of the Pig
The year 2019 is the year of the happy-go-lucky Pig, according to the Chinese zodiac. The coin itself is crafted in exceptional pure silver and it has a beautiful proof finish. Even though the mintage is not low (15,888), it would be a good idea to order your coin on time – bear in mind that it can be sent worldwide. The pig depicted on it is quite a resourceful creature which is known for being intelligent, observant and confident. In addition to this, it is also loyal and playful, which means that it will always stay by your side. Although it may appear unrefined to you, the Pig is actually a true diamond in the rough.
2019 is not the only Year of the Pig
The Pig does not rule only in 2019, according to the Chinese zodiac – it has also ruled 9 times before, in 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959, 1947, 1935, 1923 and 1911. This means that the Pig is a preferable creature with an outstanding personality. The Pig is associated with loyalty and kindness – it will not only support but it will also listen to you carefully. In case you are wrong, the Pig will not have the heart to tell you that. Other qualities the Pig has are the following: it likes the good things in life, rarely holds a grudge and it wants for everyone to get along, which means that it is a peace-loving soul.
The design of the coin
The coin was beautifully designed by the Canadian artist Aries Cheung. The obverse depicts the Pig smiling under a raincloud and the image captures the essence of its character. It is resourceful, courageous and quite confident, no matter what it faces. Nothing can keep the Pig down- not even rain or storm. The pig greets difficulties with a smile on its face and it will keep a positive attitude no matter the circumstances. What lends charm and movement to the image are stylized swirls reminiscent of the Pig’s corkscrew tail. The obverse of the coin features an image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II- it is a reminder of the ties between Canada and the United Kingdom.
