Australian Perth Mint Year of the Dog Silver Coins

The Perth Mint’s popular Silver Lunar Series II is back, this time celebrating the year 2018 with these 1 oz 2018 Year of the Dog Silver Coins. This release will be the second last release under this famous coin program, which is supposed to end in 2019 with the Year of the Pig.

Each of these coins contains 1 troy ounce of 0.9999 fine silver. Moreover, every coin carries $1 (AUD) face values, and thus, is considered legal currency in Australia. However, the face value assigned to government-backed bullion coins like these are merely symbolic in nature, as their silver value far outstrips their face value.

The obverses of these 2018 Year of the Dog Silver Coin displays the familiar Ian Rank-Broadley rendition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s right-profile effigy. This side is common to all Australian coinage with legal tender status.

On the other hand, the reverses bear the elegant image of a German Shepherd dog and its pup resting, ears cocked, looking ahead intently. It celebrates the Chinese zodiac’s Year of the Dog, 2018, with the Chinese character for dog imprinted above the aforementioned image. The phrase ‘Year of the Dog’ is seen below the image of the two dogs.

These 2018 Year of the Dog Silver Coins celebrate an integral year in the Chinese Zodiac – making this coin indispensable for collectors who hope to maintain a full collection of the Lunar Series II coins from Perth Mint. Moreover, their 0.9999 fine silver content also makes them excellent investment assets – diversifying precious metals portfolios.
