AUSTRALIAN LUNAR SILVER COIN SERIES II
2018 YEAR OF THE DOG
1/2 OZ SILVER BULLION COIN
In 2018 the Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Proof Coin Series II celebrated the Year of the Dog, the eleventh 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 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 each coin’s obverse.
Each individual bullion coin is presented in a clear protective acrylic case.
