The 2007 Year of the Pig coins completes the gold coins of The Perth Mint's Lunar Series, spanning the years 1996 - 2007. For the silver coins, however, three coins remain to be minted because the Mint did not begin producing the silver coins until 1999, with the Year of the Rabbit.
Because of the popularity of the Lunar Series and because Series collectors have moved to complete their collections, sales of the 2007 Year of the Pig coins were strong when to Pigs were released in the fall of 2006. As more collectors learn about the Lunar Series, sales of Lunar Series coins will increase.
Actually, the Lunar Series is so well done that many gold bullion investors have bought all the coins of Lunar Series, thus becoming collectors. Truly, the Perth Mint's Lunar Series is the most exciting coin series to be introduced in decades.
People born in the Year of the Pig are thought to be honest, tolerant and loyal friends, but they tend to expect the same from everyone else, and more often than not they end up disappointed. Pigs thrive in the arts as entertainers and can make skilled lawyers.
Besides 2007, other Years of Pig are 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959, 1947, 1935, 1923, and 1911.
