You’ll pay less when you buy your 1/20 oz 2018 Perth mint lunar year of the dog gold coin from our online store than you would anywhere else on the internet. This 1/20 oz gold coin is the 11th addition to the hugely successful lunar II series from Perth mint in Australia, which features an annual makeover in celebration of the 12 animals Chinese Zodiac.

2018 Will once again be the year of the dog and that’s why the reverse of this edition features a dynamic image of the popular Golden Retriever breed, seen surveying his surroundings alertly beneath a magnificently minted pine tree. The coin’s reverse also bears the Chinese symbol for ‘dog’ as well as the title of this release, ‘Year of the Dog.’

The obverse of the coin boasts a striking royal portrait with Ian Rank-Broadley’s masterful profile of Queen Elizabeth II. Together with the country and year of mintage and her Majesty’s name, the obverse also bears inscriptions which state the coin’s denomination, weight and .9999 purity.

The original Perth mint lunar series (I) saw its first release in 1996 while series II commenced in 2008 with the ‘Year of the Mouse’ range. Add the .9999 purity gold luster of the 1/20 oz 2018 Perth mint lunar year of the dog gold coin to your private collection today and own your share of the spirit of China.
