Coin Story

A coin is a coin. And coins are round. Aren’t they?! Again and again, the creative team at Coin Invest Trust shows that coins can be many things: heart-shaped, star-shaped or pig-shaped. Now comes a lucky pig in pure gold, from Liechteinstein, for Palau.

In German, there is a curious idiom about pigs and luck. «Schwein haben» – literally, «to have a pig» – in German simply means «to be lucky». As so often with idiomatic expressions, the etymological origin of the phrase is unclear. Some have tried to trace it back to a medieval custom, according to which pigs
were a common consolation prize in shooting competitions. Others believe that the phrase originated in the context of a particular card game, in which the ace, as highest card in the deck, is also referred to as «Sau» (sow). Having an ace meant having a stroke of luck.

Reverse Design

The pig’s ears, eyes, snout and mouth are engraved on the coin’s obverse. A four-leaf clover is engraved in the mouth of the laughing pig.
