Australian Gold Dog Coin
These beautifully struck gold coins are part of the Perth Mint’s Lunar Series. In 2018, we celebrate the 11th animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese 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.
The reverse of each coin depicts a chocolate Labrador retriever standing on rocks and featuring a stylized 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. This limited production coin is available in 2 oz., 1, oz., ½ oz., ¼ oz., and 1/10 oz. .9999 fine gold.
