Brisbane Bullion presents the 1oz Lunar Dog Silver coin by the Perth Mint of Australia.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.

Coin Highlights:

  • 11th release in the Perth Mint’s Series II Lunar coins
  • Supplied in hard plastic protective capsule
  • Limited mintage silver investment coin
  • Contains 1 troy ounce or 31.1 grams of pure 99.99% silver
  • Sovereign coin backed by the Australian government
  • Denomination (face value) AUD $1

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. The Dog is the eleventh sign of the Chinese Zodiac. The Dog is a symbol of loyalty and honesty. People born in the year of the dog are ferociously loyal and always dependable. They are naturally amiable and easy to get along with.

The 1oz Lunar 2018 Year of the Dog Silver Coin would make a great birthday present for anyone born between the 16th of February 2018 and 4th of February 2019, or anyone born in 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 or 2006.
