The Lunar Series II collection from the Perth Mint debuted in 2008 and featured 12 fresh designs, released one per year through 2019. The penultimate release in this series was the 2018 Year of the Dog coin. Provident Metals is happy to offer you the 2018 Proof Australian Lunar Dog 1 oz Gold Coin for purchase online today.
Your purchase of 2018 Proof Australian Lunar Dog 1 oz Gold Coins in this listing comes with a beautiful oval presentation box that has a black insert to house the coin. There is a numbered Certificate of Authenticity available from the Perth Mint and the coin and its box ship to you inside of a themed Year of the Dog shipper.
Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse of all 2018 Proof Australian Lunar Dog 1 oz Gold Coins. In the Lunar Series II collection, the Perth Mint uses the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the Queen created in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England. This design is the fifth-generation portrait used on Australian coins and comes with the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
For the reverse side, 2018 Proof Australian Lunar Dog 1 oz Gold Coins have the depiction of a Labrador Retriever. The dog is depicted in left-profile relief as it stands on some rocks underneath a tree. A trusted hunting companion, this Labrador Retriever is alert to its surroundings with its head and ears perked.
The Year of the Dog release from the Perth Mints Lunar Series II collection featured separate designs for the silver and gold coins. While the Labrador Retriever features on these gold coins, the silver coins had a German Shepherd and its pup. Ing Ing Jong has been designing the Lunar Series imagery for the Perth Mint since 2013.
2018 Proof Australian Lunar Dog 1 oz Gold Coins are available with frosted design elements and mirrored background fields.
