Buy your 1/2 oz Perth mint lunar year of the dog gold coin from our online show now at the most competitive price on the net. This 1/2 oz Gold coin is the 11th release in the hugely popular lunar series II from the historic Perth mint, which celebrates each year with the animal symbols of the Chinese Zodiac.

The reverse designs on the coins of this series change with each release and the 2018 coin features none other than man’s best friend, a Labrador Retriever, who is depicted on the lookout with a sculpted pine in the field. Also on the reverse you’ll see the Chinese symbol for ‘dog’ and the words ‘Year of the Dog.’

The obverse of this .9999 fine gold coin bears a crisp and beautifully portrayed profile of Queen Elizabeth II, as crafted by Ian Rank-Broadley. The coin’s obverse relief is encircled by inscriptions stating the country of origin, Australia, as well as the weight, purity and face value of the coin.

The Chinese Zodiac is an age old system still diligently adhered to in the every day lives of the people of China; this is one of the reasons why Lunar coins are amongst the most popular collection pieces in the world. Celebrate the year of the dog when you order your 1/2 oz 2018 Perth mint lunar year of the dog gold coin today.
