The Lunar Series II collection debuted in 2008 with the Year of the Rat and follows the same 12-year cycle as the Lunar Series I collection. The coins are available in the 2019 Australian Silver Pig issue with 1/2 oz, 1 oz silver, 2 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz, 1 Kilo, and 10 Kilo options. There are also silver proof coins in the collection with 1/2 oz, 1 oz, and 1 Kilo silver coins, additionally offered in a three-coin box.
All of these 2019 1 oz Australian Silver Pig Coins include three ways to purchase the coin. For those interested in just one coin, those arrive inside of protective capsules. Bulk purchases of the coni are available in sealed rolls of 20 coins or sealed boxes of 100 coins with a total of five sealed rolls. The 1 oz silver coin is one of two weights in the Australian Silver Pig range with a set mintage cap. The rest have an unlimited mintage.
On the reverse of 2019 1 oz Australian Silver Pig coinage is the depiction of a family of pigs. There is a large, adult pig depicted standing in the background with a left-profile relief and a collection of four piglets running around in the foreground of the design field.
The obverse face of 2019 1 oz Australian Silver Pig coins is among the last from the Perth Mint to feature Ian Rank-Broadleys fourth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys latest effigy from Jody Clark will start appearing on Perth Mint coinage in 2019, but the Lunar Series II collection continues with the fourth-generation design to maintain continuity in the design of Lunar Series II coins.
