The Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II – 2018 Year of the Dog 1oz Silver Proof High Relief coin represents the very best in minting excellence and design.

Purity and Issue Limit

Each coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 7,500 of the 2018 Year of the Dog 1oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin.

Design

The reverse of the 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 Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and the monetary denomination are shown on the coin’s obverse.

The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.

Presentation 

Each coin is housed in a classic black and red display case within a themed shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
