The Perth Mint Silver Lunar Coins: Series II

The Australian Lunar coin series celebrates Chinese astrology and the Chinese zodiac. The 12-year series features releases marking the Year of the Mouse, Year of the Ox, Year of the Tiger, Year of the Rabbit, Year of the Dragon, Year of the Snake, Year of the Horse, Year of the Goat, Year of the Monkey, Year of the Rooster, Year of the Dog and Year of the Pig. 2018 is the Year of the Dog.

 

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. 

 

Design  

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. 

 

Australian silver lunar coins are official legal tender of Australia and the finishing, weight and purity are guaranteed by the Perth Mint and Western Australia Government. As with other Perth Mint coins, the quality is very good and each coin is individually cased in a plastic case instead of a coin tube. Beside their investment value Perth Mint coins make excellent gift items due to their quality and individual packaging.
