Gold 1oz coin with coloured dog

Richly coloured, this exquisite gold coin is the perfect acquisition for those born during the year of the dog or anyone with a love for the 11th animal of the 12-year Chinese zodiac.

Those born under this sign are said to be loyal, amiable, kind and friendly, just like 'man's best friend'. The birth years for this sign include 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018.

Year of the dog design

The reverse of each coin depicts a silky chocolate labrador retriever standing on rocks with a pine tree in the background.

The Chinese character for ‘dog’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Dog’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
