As is customary for modern coins of Australia, the obverse displays a portrait of Elizabeth II wearing a crown. The coin’s country of origin and denomination are displayed towards the periphery. The engraver’s initials of “IRB” appear directly underneath the Queen’s portrait.
To honor the Lunar Year of the Dog, the coin’s reverse displays a eagle standing in a path of grass. The year 2006 appears to the left while the chinese character for “dog” is placed to the right. The purity and fineness of the coin is engraved towards the bottom.
For over two decades, the Perth Mint’s Lunar coin series have been sought by collectors and investors worldwide. Its appeal is no surprise; the coins offer an outstanding combination of variety, beautiful ever-changing designs, and superb craftsmanship. Not only do they make great collectibles, but Perth Lunar coins enjoy tremendous popularity with investors too. Their premiums at the time of issue tend to be relatively modest, but often appreciate in value over time.
This is a scarcer Series I issue from the Perth Mint’s Lunar product line. Just 26,334 pieces were made and, due to the dog’s popularity as a pet, this issue is always in strong demand. Fresh, Gem Uncirculated specimens like this appear on the market infrequently.
Each coin will be shipped in its original hard plastic capsule as issued by the Perth Mint of Australia.
