The 5 oz variant from this year’s Perth Mint Lunar Series II release – the 2018 5 oz Year of the Dog Silver Coin, is now available at SD Bullion. Perth Mint has been honoring every animal in the Chinese zodiac with annual coin releases since 2008, depicting every year’s animal.
Each of these coins contains 5 troy ounces of 0.9999 pure silver. Interestingly, this is the first release under this program to feature silver of this purity, as all previous releases contained 0.999 fine silver. Hence, these silver coins mark another important milestone, along with being the 11th release in the Lunar Series II silver coin program.
Moreover, every one of these silver coins carries a $5 (AUD) face value, and the Australian government recognizes them as legal tender in Australia.
The reverses of these coins bear a beautiful scene highlighting a dog and its pup. Although they’re shown in a half-sitting, half-lazing position, the dogs’ demeanor is most definitely alert and watchful.
On the other hand, the obverse sides of these coins bear the famed Ian Rank-Broadley portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II – indicating the legal tender status of these coins.
These 2018 5 oz Year of the Dog Silver Coins offer a wonderful way to usher in a new year. Furthermore, these coins are essential to collectors hoping to maintain the full set of Lunar Series II silver coins. These coins’ 0.9999 pure silver content also makes them ideal candidates for expanding precious metals portfolios – attracting investors as well.
