Gold Quarter Ounce 2019 Year of the Pig, RAM, Coin from Australia
CoinGold Quarter Ounce 2019 Year of the Pig, RAM

The Australian quarter-ounce gold piece (abbreviated as 1/4 oz and designated with Au for "gold") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This coin is part of the Lunar Series by the Royal Australian Mint (RAM) and is dedicated to the Lunar "Year of the Pig", celebrating those born under the twelfth sign of the Chinese horoscope.

People born in the year of the pig are considered to be very honest and serious. Pigs are the perfectionists of the Chinese zodiac and are very attentive to their environment.

The obverse shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2019.
