This fantastic 99.99% pure silver coin features a beautiful design of 2 German Shepherds, an adult and its puppy. The design includes Chinese peony flowers, which symbolises wealth and honour. Accompanying the dogs is the Chinese character which symbolises the word gŏu, meaning dog, and The Perth Mint P mint mark.
The reverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth designed by The Royal Mint designer Ian Rank-Broadley.
The coin's high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.

The dog is believed to be an honest, amiable and loyal figure - and this extends to those born under the sign. Those born in the Year of the Dog are easy-going, and often work in jobs that help others. Famous Dogs include Mother Teresa, Winston Churchill, and Elvis Presley.
Years of the dog include 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, & 2018.
