Mongolian lunar year issues are still rare and sought after. Beginning in 2016 with the Year of the Monkey, CIT has issued lunar coins for Mongolia every year in various specification ranging from minute 11 mm gold coins to the large silver note canvas in the Year of the Dog.
The 2019 Mongolian lunar coins for the first time receive a smartminting treatment resulting in the charming and truly uniqe Jolly Silver Pig and Gilded Jolly Pig. Minted from one ounce of fine silver, the Jolly Pig is a three-dimensional numismatic sculpture with beautiful floral ornaments. The pig is minted in a way that allows it to stand freely on its own making it an ideal display and conversation piece. It is undoubtedly one of the most unique lunar coins ever minted and ships in an elegant collector’s box. The silver variant is limited to 999 pieces, while the rarer gilded variety will be minted 888 times.
The two Jolly Pigs are flanked by two additional lunar coins – a traditional gold version and once again a five-gram silver note with glossy surface finishing.
