Perfect for coin collectors and dog lovers

Those born under the sign of the highly intelligent animal are said to be good-natured, loyal, kind and sincere, with birth years for this sign including 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018.

Year of the dog design

The reverse of the coin depicts a German shepherd and 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 with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Skilled artisans have used deeply engraved dies and extra deep blanks to give this coin an appreciably raised relief. This highlights the detail of the delightful design in spectacular style.
