With your purchase of 1 oz Gold Lunar Year of the Dog Bars, Provident Metals is happy to offer you the original sealed assay pack from the Scottsdale Mint and Argor-Heraeus. Each bar is individually packaged inside of the sealed assay with a capsule to house the bar in the center. The card includes certification information such as the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar. Most important of all, the card features the assayers signature and a unique serial number assigned to this bar.
In the obverse design, the 1 oz Gold Lunar Year of the Dog Bar showcases the image of a dog in left-profile relief. This isnt any old dog design though. The mint has used the Chinese symbol for a dog to form the body of the animal in the center of the design, with a stylized head to create the complete image of a dog. Inscriptions on this face of the bar include Year of the Dog at the top and 2018 at the bottom.
For the reverse design field, 1 oz Gold Lunar Year of the Dog Bars in this listing have the joint logo of the Scottsdale Mint and Argor-Heraeus. This circular logo is set at the top of the bar with the American and Swiss flags in the center and the two mint names around the flags in an outer circle. The inscriptions below include the weight, purity, and metal content as 1 Troy Ounce, 9999, Fine Gold. An assayers mark is included on this side as well.
The Year of the Dog is the 11th in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. The Chinese lunar calendar resets and repeats every 12 years with the Year of the Rat first and the Year of the Pig last. Each of the gold bars in this series is produced only for the calendar year in which the animal represented is active in the Zodiac.
