The globally acclaimed Chinese Lunar calendar series from the Perth Mint, celebrates the year of the Dog as the 11th in a series of 12 zodiacal animals.

On the reverse side, rests one of the most beloved of all dogs, the German shepherd as she lays on the grass, with her adorable pup; the pair rendered in astonishing detail and with the addition of vibrant full colour. China’s national flower, the peony also features on the reverse as well as the Chinese character for ‘dog’, as well as the ‘year of the dog’ title.

On the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley’s meticulously produced portrait of Elizabeth II, shown in crisp relief with colour. The Queen’s name, the country of origin, weight, purity, denominational value and year of issue accompany the Queen’s portrait.

Those born under the year of the dog are said to share in its characteristics, displaying loyalty, friendliness and unconditional love; they include those born in 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018.
