The Australian Lunar II Coin Series has been incredibly popular with both precious metals collectors and investors. Part of the lure of this series is that it offers coins in both gold and silver, and there are a variety of size options. With both proof and bullion releases as well, there are a ton of options available the choose from. Right now, you can purchase the 2018 Proof Australian Lunar Dog 1 Kilo Silver Coin from Provident Metals.


  • Ships in a clamshell box with a presentation package in the theme of the series.
  • 11th release in the Lunar Series II from Perth Mint.
  • Mintage limited to just 500 coins!
  • Each coin contains 1 Kilo (32.15 Troy oz) of .9999 pure silver.
  • Given a face value of $30 (AUD) by the government of Australia.
  • Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse.
  • Year of the Dog design showcased on the reverse.
  • Designed by Ing Ing Jong.

While this coin series offers releases in both gold and silver, the designs vary between the precious metals options. On the gold coins, for example, Ing Ing Jong chose the Labrador Retriever to represent the Year of the Dog. Additionally, there is only one dog in that design. Jong, who designed both coins, went a different route for the silver offering.

On the silver coins, Jong chose to represent the Year of the Year with a pair of German Shepherds. One of the dogs is a puppy, while the other is mature.


Queen Elizabeth II is proudly featured on the obverse face of these coins. She is pictured in right-profile relief in this fourth-generation design that was created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.


The reverse face of each coin showcases the Year of the Dog design. On this coin, you will see two German Shepherd Dogs lying in a field. As one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States and the United Kingdom, it was a wise choice for placement on these coins. GSD are also commonly used as police and military dogs.


The Perth Mint is the oldest operating minting facility in Australia. It is the only other mint located in the country aside from the sovereign Royal Australian Mint. The Perth Mint is located in Western Australia, and it was originally created as part of the British Royal Mint in 1899.
