The second release in the adorable new Puppies series features a border collie.
Renowned as one of the most intelligent dog breeds, border collies have been among Australia’s most popular pets for decades.
The breed’s name comes from its original home in the English-Scottish border region where the dogs were developed from the 1700s to herd livestock, particularly sheep.
With their boundless energy, eagerness to please and ability to quickly learn new tricks, border collie puppies love playing with their owners, especially if it involves a ball or a frisbee.
The coin’s reverse features a border collie puppy sitting with a red frisbee in its mouth while holding up a paw as if ready for a game of fetch. In the background is a stylised representation of a rural backyard with a farm gate and field flowers.
The coin is housed in a classic grey display case within a superbly illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
