Welcome the Lunar Year of the Dog, the eleventh animal of the Zodiac, with this stunning uncirculated coin.

The obverse of this silver coin features a lovable dog, standing alert and ready. He stands on a rocky patch of ground, and behind him stands an intricately detailed tree. Besides the dog is the Chinese character which symbolizes the word 'gŏu', meaning 'dog'. Surrounding this design are original Lunar Series design elements.      

The reverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley.

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.

A perfect gift for birthdays or the New Year

Whether its a treat for you or another Dog in your life, or a little something to celebrate the advent of a new year - this is the coin for you.
