|smartminting® (Ultra High Relief)
The 12-year Chinese lunar earth cycle concluded in 2019 with the year of the pig. CIT celebrated the event with a superlative lunar coin, struck with smartminting technology, in the three-dimensional shape of a pig.
The creative team of CIT managed to breathe new life into the crowded world of lunar coins that flood the numismatic market each year, and the success of the Jolly Silver Pig paved the way for its successor, ushering in the lunar metal cycle with the year of the mouse. The Witty Silver Mouse issued for Mongolia is once again struck three-dimensionally, to produce a freestanding, adorable mouse that not only numismatists will come to cherish and adore.
