The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Proof Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Dog, the eleventh animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar dog include 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be loyal, amiable, kind and friendly.
The reverse of the coin depicts a German shepherd dog, gilded in 24 carat gold, and a pup lying in grass with Chinese peony flowers in the background. The Chinese character for ‘dog’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Dog’ also appear in the design.
Each coin is housed in a classic black and red display case and themed shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
