Details & Specifications

The Perth Mint's Lunar Series is back with the Year of Dog for 2018! This popular coin series has been running for over 20 years, bringing an entire new generation of collectors and bullion investors into the hobby. The 2018 Year of the Dog 1/2 oz Silver Coin bears a 50ยข face value, is struck from .9999 fine silver, and contains one-half troy ounce (0.5 oz) of pure silver.

The reverse design depicts a two dogs, an adult and a puppy, laying down. Both dogs are of the German Shephard breed. 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.)

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.

The mint artists come up with a brand new design for the year's Chinese zodiac sign every year. Over the last century, the Year of the Dog has previously occurred in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, and 2006. (The Lunar cycle repeats every 12 years.) People born during these years are said to possess courage, loyalty, and a friendly disposition.
