Description

The idiom “WHEN PIGS FLY,” is apparently derived from a centuries-old Scottish proverb.  It is an adynaton, a way of saying that something will never happen. The phrase is often used for humorous effect, to scoff at over-ambition. There are numerous variations on the theme; when an individual with a reputation for failure finally succeeds, onlookers may sarcastically claim to see a flying pig.

  • Contains 1 Troy Ounce .999 Fine Silver
  • Obverse:  A winged and happy pig flying through a sky full of billowy clouds.
  • Reverse: High-Relief Intaglio Mint logo set on radial burst surrounded by stippled border reading “TWO TROY OUNCES” above and “.999 FINE SILVER” below on textured background, flanked by mintage year in roman numerals “MMXX”.
