The ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar, which dates back beyond 2600BC, is steeped in tradition and symbolism. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in a twelve-year lunar cycle. The Chinese believe each animal has a profound influence on the personality of those born under its rule.

In Chinese culture, people born in the Year of the Pig are regarded as gallant, honest, generous and intelligent. As a result, these coins make superb gifts for anyone born in 1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995 and 2007.
