Description

You’ll enjoy the best price on the internet when you purchase your 1/4 oz 2018 Perth mint lunar year of the dog gold coin from our store now! The 2018 coin is the eleventh design in the much loved Perth mint lunar series II which will include 12 designs when complete; each design featuring the animal which represents that year in the Chinese zodiacal calendar.

2018 is ‘The Year of the Dog’ in the Chinese lunar cycle and that’s why the reverse of this coin depicts a striking Labrador Retriever, on high alert as he scouts the picturesque landscape of pine and rock. The Chinese character for ‘dog’ and the title ‘Year of the Dog’ are also beautifully inscribed on the reverse of the coin.

The obverse relief is that of Queen Elizabeth The Second, seen in crisp profile, as depicted by Ian Rank-Broadley. The obverse image is neatly encapsulated by the coin’s weight and .9999 purity as well as its denomination, date and country of origin, Australia.

Each year, the coins in this series are eagerly awaited by enthusiasts the world over, partly due to their flawless visual design and partly due to the powerful symbolism inherent in the animals of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. What better way to diversify your coin holdings than with a 1/4 oz 2018 Perth mint lunar year of the dog gold coin today!
