The inception of the Lunar Series occurred in 1996, captivating bullion enthusiasts with its extraordinary popularity. Originally comprised solely of gold coins, this exceptional collection by Perth Mint has undergone expansion to encompass both silver bullion and platinum bullion coins. Remarkably, each distinct stage within the Lunar Series corresponds precisely with the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. Provident Metals now has 2006 Australian Lunar Dog 1 oz Silver Coins available to purchase online.

When you purchase one of these 2006 1 oz Australian Lunar Dog 1 oz Silver Coins online at Provident Metals, your coin will arrive in an individual protective capsule. German Shepherds have a natural instinct to protect and serve, making them excellent guard dogs and loyal family companions. They are known for their exceptional loyalty and devotion to their owners and will go to great lengths to protect and defend their loved ones.


Featured prominently on the obverse face of the 2006 Australian Lunar Dog Silver Coins is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This particular depiction, created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 for the Royal Mint, serves as the fourth iteration of the Queen during her reign. The inscriptions include ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 1 DOLLAR.


When you examine the reverse design of the 2006 Lunar Dog 1 oz Silver Coin, you will encounter a captivating portrayal of the German shepherd. Poised in a seated position on a small cluster of rocks, the dog is adorned by sprightly foliage that emerges gently from the crevices, enhancing the overall visual appeal. Inscriptions read 2006, 1 OZ 999 SILVER, and the Chinese symbol for a dog.


In Chinese astrology, the Year of the Dog is believed to have specific compatibility traits with other zodiac signs. It is said that people born in the Year of the Dog are most compatible with individuals born in the Year of the Horse, Tiger, or Rabbit. These signs share common traits and complementary qualities that foster harmonious relationships. On the other hand, they may have more challenges when interacting with individuals born in the Year of the Dragon, Ox, or Sheep.
