Story

Four pure silver 1oz coins

2018 is the Year of the Dog, the 11th animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. This stunning silver typeset collection comprises four silver coins - a proof, gilded, bullion and coloured finished coin.
The birth years for people born in the year of the 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.

Each coin is struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver and finished in a stunning range of popular numismatic treatments sought after by collectors and gift buyers.

Proof, Gilded, Bullion and Coloured Finishes

The reverse of each coin depicts a German Shepherd Dog 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.

  • The delicately frosted design on the silver proof coin appears on an immaculately polished table.
  • The shiny design on the bullion coin appears on a frosted table.
  • The gilded edition highlights the dog in 24 carat gold.
  • The coloured edition depicts the dog and the pup in vivid colour.
