People who own dogs were viewed as immortal so here is your chance to take advantage of that good fortune! Since dogs symbolize 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. It is even viewed as good luck when a homeless dog wanders into your yard and you adopt them. An interesting fact: black poodles are viewed as the luckiest animal to the Chinese culture.The 2006 silver dog coin is 10 ounces of .999 pure silver, is in brilliant uncirculated condition with proof-like qualities, and comes in a mint sealed capsule.
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, with the coin's legal tender value and place of mintage also included. The reverse reveals a wild-looking dog, with it's ears perked and its body language reveals the relaxed state of the dog. Man has had a relationship with dogs since the beginning of time so it appropriate that this dog looks approachable. The reverse also bears the coin's date of mintage, weight, and purity. This large 10 ounce coin is not only easy to store but it comes encapsulated so it's extra protected against the harsh element. The Perth Mint made an unlimited amount of these coins but their popularity only keeps growing throughout the years. If you have never owned a 10 ounce coin before, the Australian Lunar Series is the one to beat! Enjoy owning 10 ounces of pure silver while taking pride in the excellent design and craftsmanship of the actual coin!
