Featuring a beautiful design of a terrier to honor the Chinese Year of the Dog, another impressive release joins the Royal Mint’s Shengxiào collection of coins – the 2018 1 oz Great Britain Year of the Dog Silver Coin.

The Shengxiào collection was an initiative aimed at celebrating the Chinese Lunar Calendar by honoring every animal in the Chinese zodiac. Each year the Royal Mint releases a gold and silver coin, which features the animal believed to influence that year.

Each of these silver coins contains 1 troy ounce of 0.999 pure silver. Moreover, since these coins are assigned legal tender status in the United Kingdom, they bear face values of £2 each.

The reverses of these coins bear the image of a playful terrier – created by Wuon-Gean Ho. Interestingly, according to the Chinese zodiac, those born in this year are believed to be loyal, honest, and friendly. The artist successfully captures the essence of the Year of the Dog with this playful, yet elegant portrayal.

On the other hand, the right-facing effigy of Queen Elizabeth II makes an appearance on the obverse faces. The face value of the coin and the name of the Queen surround the elegant rendition of Queen Elizabeth II.

With the Royal Mint declaring a mintage of just 138,888 for these Year of the Dog silver coins, the demand is bound to exceed supply. This coin will be an essential purchase for coin collectors who want to maintain the full Shengxiào coin collection, while investors will love these coins as a way to diversify their investments.
