  • Description:

    The Year of the Dog is the next issue for the Perth Mint Lunar Series. Following the Chinese Zodiac calendar, the Perth Mint has released top notch quality coins since the collection began in 1996. The Perth Mint started this series to celebrate the Chinese zodiac calendar, which is an ancient system connecting animals and humans to birth years. This calendar is known to tell the fortune of a person, depending on the year they were born into. The Year of the Dog dates include: 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018. Those born under those years are said to have personality traits of sincerity, loyalty, friendliness, and hardworking.

    The Australian Lunar Series has been appealing to both silver and gold investors since 1996, when the first coin was minted. Since then, the Perth Mint ended the Australian Lunar Series I and began Australian Lunar Series II in 2008, which overlapped with Series 1 for three years. Combining the brilliant contrast of glossy proof finish with the frosted features of brilliant uncirculated, the Australian Lunar Series is the future of coin technology. The Perth Mint even secures each coin in their own protective capsule to ensure customers receive the utmost service any mint or refinery as to offer!
