There are countless private and sovereign mints around the globe that have introduced coin programs bearing the images of the animals from the Chinese lunar calendar. The 12-year cycle of the calendar, known as the Zodiac, brings new designs each year.

On the Chinese lunar calendar there are 12 animals represented over the course of a 12-year cycle. Each animal brings different characteristics and traits to those born under its sign. Each new release in the PAMP Suisse Lunar Bar series is reflective of the animal in the Zodiac for that given year. For example, the 2018 minting of bars in the series features a Year of the Dog design.
The designs in the PAMP Suisse Lunar Collection are unique in that the design on one side is reflected from a different angle on the opposite. This has been a staple of the PAMP series from the beginning, but has been enhanced in recent years to reflect more complex designs.
On the obverse of the new Lunar Dog Silver Bar for 2018 is the Year of the Dog design. In this image, a golden retriever species is depicted as the dog sits in front of its house. The lone engraving featured on this side of the bar is that of the Chinese character for dog.
The reverse of the 1 oz PAMP Suisse Lunar Dog Silver Bar offers a different take on that same design. Rather than focusing on the larger adult dog as it sits in front of the dog house, we see the front side of the dog house and a younger dog in the doorway to the dog house. The serial number, weight, purity, metal content, and PAMP Suisse logo are all included on this side of the bar.
Your purchase of the 1 oz PAMP Suisse Lunar Dog Silver Bar arrives inside of a protective package. These plastic packages include an assay card with the signature of PAMP Suisse’s Assayer. This validates the metal content and purity of the bar, and the card also includes the serial number matching the one engraved individually onto each bar.
