The pig is the 12th and final animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese lunar calendar, or Zodiac. Chinese tradition dictates that the Jade Emperor invited all the animals of the world to a meeting and the order in which they arrived indicates their position in the 12-year cycle. So, why is the pig featured 12th (last) in the cycle?
Chinese tradition also states that the pig was late to the meeting ordered by the Jade Emperor. It is said that the pig overslept and that is why he was last. Regardless of this misfortune, the pig is actually a symbol of wealth and good fortune to the Chinese people.
On the obverse side of each 1 oz Scottsdale Year of the Pig Gold Bar is a distinct design used just for the 2019 release of these new products. The pig is featured inside of a circle with the engravings of 2019 and Year of the Pig included around the design. Both above the design field and within the 0 in 2019 is the Chinese symbol for a pig.
The reverse field of the Scottsdale Year of the Pig Gold Bar includes the combined logo of Argor Heraeus and Scottsdale Mint, both of whom teamed together in the production of these beautiful gold bars. This design includes a circle with the name of both mints and the American and Swiss flags in the center. Engravings of the weight, purity, and metal content are also featured on this face, along with an assayers mark.
These 1 oz Scottsdale Year of the Pig Gold Bars are available to you inside of Certi-Lock packaging that ensures the security of your gold bar from shipment to receipt. The packaging includes an Assayers mark and signature.
