The dog symbolizes fortune and good luck in Chinese culture. It is believed that the dog is man's best friend and even understands the human spirit, whether the owner is wealthy or not. When a dog would wonder to someone's house, normally that would be an annoyance but in ancient times, it was a sign of good luck to adopt the dog. An interesting fact: black poodles are viewed as the luckiest animal to the Chinese culture. People who own dogs were viewed as immortal so it's safe to say you need to own a dog; even if it's just this coin!
This 2006 silver dog coin is 1 ounce pure silver, is in brilliant uncirculated condition with proof-like qualities, and comes in a mint sealed capsule. The amount of these coins that the Perth Mint produced is 98,825, making these coins a hot commodity in the coin-collecting world. The Australian Lunar Series I is the perfect starter collection for anyone who wants to buy silver and collect coins at the same time. The obverse of the coin displays the famous side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Along the rim, the coin's denomination, $1, and "Australia" is written.
