Perth Mint Gold (2018 Dog Coins) – 2018 is the Year of the Dog in Chinese Lunar Calendar
 
1-ounce 24-Karat Gold – Limited Edition 30,000 coins
 
Gold and silver coins issued for the Chinese Lunar Calendar have attractive designs and are popular collectibles. The Australian Gold Lunar Series II feature the 12 animals central to the calendar's stories. According to the lunar calendar, each of the 12 animals has an influence over those born under its year of "rule." The current series began in 2008 with the Year of the Mouse coins and will end with the Year of the Pig coins in 2019. We expect the 2018 coins featuring a dog will be one of the most popular coins in the series.
Obverse: features Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, that is mandatory on Australian legal tender coins along with the Gold purity, year of issue and face value.
Reverse: Depicts a Labrador retriever on rocks with a stylized pine tree in the background. This beautiful lunar design also incorporates the Chinese character for "Dog", the inscription "Year of the Dog", and The Perth Mint's traditional "P" mintmark.
