Details & Specifications

The Perth Mint is perhaps best-known to coin collectors for its fantastic Lunar Series of gold and silver coins. The series continues with the 2018 Lunar Dog 1 oz Silver Coin. Struck from extra-pure .9999 fine silver, each coin has an actual silver weight (ASW) of 1 troy ounce and is given a $1 (AUD) face value.

The reverse design depicts a two German Shepherds, an adult and a puppy, laying at rest. The legend "Year of the Dog" is inscribed near the bottom rim. To the left of the adult dog, the character for "Dog" in the Chinese Lunar calendar is shown. (There is a separate Chinese character when referring to the actual animal of a dog rather than the Lunar Year.)

The obverse features an image of HM Queen Elizabeth II facing left. Around the outer rim, the coin's weight and purity, the year of issue "2018," the denomination, and issuing country "AUSTRALIA" are inscribed.

Originally, the Lunar Series was an excellent way for Perth Mint, located in Australia, to establish a foothold in the nearby Southeast Asia market, where familiarity with the Chinese zodiac is widespread. Now, the Lunar Series has exploded into an international phenomenon with eager investors and collectors all over the world following the series.

Those born under the sign of the Dog are believed to be loyal, valiant, and sincere. Past occurrences of the Year of the Dog include 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1958, 1946, and 1934.
