Two of the worlds most popular dog breeds were chosen for the Lunar Series II release of the Year of the Dog design. For the silver coins in the collection, the fairly new German Shepherd was chosen. These rugged, highly trainable working breed dogs were only recently created in 1899 from other breed lines.
Today, youll find German Shepherds in a variety of settings as one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States and United Kingdom. In addition to traditional working roles, these dogs also serve as lovable family pets and extremely reliable service dogs for those with disabilities, police forces, and military units around the globe.
Your 2018 1 oz Proof Australian Silver Dog Coin is available inside the Perth Mints famous red-and-black clamshell. The clamshell houses the individual coin and is itself shipped inside of a presentation box with Lunar Series II Year of the Dog imagery. Each coin also comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Ing Ing Jongs design of the German Shepherds is featured on the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Proof Australian Silver Dog Coin. Youll find not one, but two of these beautiful dogs lying in a field with Chinese peony flowers in the background. Engravings include the Chinese character for dog, the Perth Mint P mint mark, and the phrase Year of the Dog.
The obverse of all Proof Australian Silver Dog Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is featured on all Australian coinage in the fourth-generation vision created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
