Introduction

As a long-term partner of the Perth Mint, Tavex is pleased to offer one of world’s finest minted silver bullion coins, the 2018 Australian Lunar Year of the Dog. The silver coin is part of Perth Mint’s praised chronological silver bullion collection, the Australian Lunar Series II, where each coin in the series is only minted once every twelve years in accordance with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.

The Year of the Dog silver coin contains 99.99% pure silver and is produced with a special minting technique that ensures the coin is in proof-like condition, meaning it has exceptionally shiny and mat surfaces coupled with the richest of detail. This bullion coin is truly a piece of breathtaking silver art suitable for collectors with an eye for beauty and those who wish to give their loved ones something really memorable and special.

Why Buy

  • Australian Lunar Year of the Dog silver coins are money. The Silver Lunar Series was introduced for the first time in 1999 and every silver coin in the series, including the Year of the Dog, is considered to be legal tender by the Australian Government.
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Dog silver coins are based on the treasured Chinese lunar calendar. Those born in the year of the dog are generally perceived to be honest, loyal, sincere, and of good nature, but they tend to be cautious and conservative.
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Dog silver coins are great gifts for your loved ones. Give a tribute to the ones you appreciate by marking their virtues and year of birth in pure .9999 fine silver, a gift that will stay with them forever. 
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Dog silver coins are made in proof-like condition. Minted with such high quality, brilliance and rich detail, it becomes hard not to call it “my precious”. 
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Dog silver coins are popular with astute collectors. Its motif of the dog that varies every 12th year, its maximum mintage limit, and its quality, purity and legal tender status mean that the coin has a considerable premium over its melt value in the secondary market. 
  • Australian Lunar Year of the Dog silver coins are internationally recognised. By being part of the Australian Silver Lunar Series which has been in continuous production for 15 years, and by portraying motifs of the famous Chinese zodiac and the effigy of the most powerful and longest serving queen in the 20th century, Queen Elizabeth II, the Australian Lunar Year of the Dog silver coin is recognised throughout the globe by bullion dealers and collectors alike.

History

The Chinese lunar calendar is today used by many for Taoist cosmology. It is believed that, depending on the year of the zodiac when a person is born, a special relationship exists between the person’s personality and the animal that constitutes part of the Chinese zodiac. The animals in the zodiac are supposed to be of symbolic nature, where each animal is a representation of a specific group of characteristics and traits that can be found in every human being. There are twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac, and each of them is celebrated once every twelve years. The year of the dog was celebrated in 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018.

Those born in the year of the dog are considered to be persons who bear a strong sense of loyalty towards others and will do anything for the person they cherish the most. Likewise, they are ready to help others and tend to put the interest of others before their own. People born in the year of the dog are said to be people who cherish a quiet life in the companionship of the family. They are also considered to be honest and sincere, disapproving of evil acts and dishonest gain. Because of their truthfulness, they will sometimes have issues coping with other people’s bad behaviour. Other people tend to have a harder time establishing a relationship with people born under the sign of the dog as they tend to be more conservative and cautious. But once friendship is established, they become excellent companions as they will remain faithful in maintaining the relationship. 

It can therefore be seen that the Australian Silver Lunar Year of the Dog coin is an ideal gift for whoever you love or respect, since giving a Silver Lunar coin means that you are showing affection by immortalising the person’s year of birth and particular virtues in pure and precious silver artwork.

Obverse

The obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Australia’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Australia has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Above the Queen’s effigy is the text “ELIZABETH II” and “AUSTRALIA”. Inscribed below the effigy is the weight "1 oz", purity of the coin "9999 Ag", the year of mintage, denomination "30 DOLLARS", and the designer’s initials “IRB” – Ian Rank-Broadley.

Reverse

The reverse portrays a German Shepherd with a puppy. Inscribed above the dogs is the Chinese character for “Dog”. Below the dog is the text “Year of the Dog” and to the left is the letter “P” which stands for Perth Mint.

Packaging

Each coin is individually packaged in a hard plastic capsule at the Perth Mint. Multiples of ten coins are available in the Perth Mint's cardboard package.
