I can tell you the years, but have no idea about mintage and value

Pig is 乙亥 which is twelfth year B12 of the 60 year cycle, so it is 1995

Rooster is 癸酉 which is tenth year J10 of the 60 year cycle, so it is 1993

Thanks, I came across them on a German site and I've never seen them.

Shanghai Mint issued many different forms of New Year greeting cards. These are two of the earlier years.  The mintage is usually very high. For example, since 2003, the mintage, printed on the card, is 100,000.
