The Rwandan Lunar Ounce program is just the latest effort of silver manufacturers to offer silver buyers a choice with lunar-themed designs. As the Lunar Series II coins from the BH Mayer Mint wind to a conclusion in 2019, programs such as the Rwandan Lunar Ounce are just getting started. The series launched with the Year of the Rooster in 2017 and will not conclude until the Year of the Monkey in 2028.
Rwanda’s Lunar Ounce Series uses on the same design for the obverse of both the silver and gold coins offered in the collection. While programs such as the BH Mayer Mint series have various weights to choose from, Rwandan Lunar Ounce coins are available in either 1 oz silver or 1 oz gold, with only the options mentioned above.
2019 1 oz Proof Rwandan Silver Lunar Pig Coins have a very low mintage figure of 1,000 pieces in total. The other coins in the collection have different mintage figures. The silver bullion coins are offered from September 1, 2018, until December 31, 2019, and the 1 oz gold coin features just 188 coins in total.
The obverse of the 2019 Proof Rwandan Silver Lunar Pig Coin features the image of a female pig, or sow, laying on its side as it allows three little piglets to get the milk they need to grow bigger. Engravings include “Lunar Ounce,” “Year of the Pig,” and the coin’s year of issue, weight, metal content, and purity.
On the reverse of 2019 1 oz Proof Rwandan Silver Lunar Pig Coins is the official seal of Rwanda. This side of the coin has a mirrored background and frosted design elements, while the background of the obverse is dominated by the “cracked-glass” visuals that make these Rwandan Lunar Ounce coins unique.
