Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of a special new coin which celebrates the New Chinese Year of the Pig with some familiar characters. Issued on behalf of Sierra Leone in conjunction with Rovio Entertainment Corporation, this fabulous new coin features Leonard, the King of Piggy Island in Angry BirdsTM, with two of his Pigs wishing you good fortune for the Chinese New Year.

Angry Birds hatched as a casual mobile game that has blossomed into one of the most beloved entertainment brands in the world, inspiring over a dozen games, billions of consumer products, several animated series and a hit blockbuster movie. In the center of the story is the epic battle between the flightless birds and the green pigs. Why do they fight? Because the pigs keep orchestrating new outlandish schemes for stealing the birds’ eggs to bring back to their greedy king. But these eggs contain the birds’ precious Hatchlings, which they must protect at all cost. Using whatever means necessary, the birds, led by the reclusive Red, must find a way to foil the cleverest of piggy plans.

However, on the coin, Leonard and his two helpers appear to have undergone a change of heart and are wishing us good luck for the Chinese Year of the Pig. Those born under the sign of the Pig are said to be warm-hearted, honest and tolerant to others. They dislike quarreling so usually get on well with everyone. Famous people born in the Year of the Pig include Ronald Reagan, Michael Jackson, and Elton John.

Produced in Unc. Cupro Nickel and in color, this exclusive coin shows the three characters clutching eggs while standing on a cloud with the sun rising behind them. The obverse of the coin features the Coat of Arms of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

A special color pack has been produced to house the coin.
