PREVIOUS COIN SOLD OUT! Our most affordable Year of the Dog coin, an ideal gift!

Celebrate the most likeable sign of the Chinese zodiac with this original, pure silver coin honouring the Year of the Dog. Just like man's best friend, Dog people are warm and easy-going, with a deep sense of loyalty. They'll stick with you through thick and thin, but also have an uncanny way of seeing right through you—like the adoration you feel by gifting them this fetching coin!

The perfect gift or keepsake for a friend or loved one born in the Year of the Dog: 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006—and this year's newborns from February 16, 2018 to February 4, 2019. Order today!

Special features:
  • BEAUTIFUL SPECIMEN FINISH! The finish on your coin combines brilliant and frosted relief over a lined background. No other mint in the world offers coins with this kind of finish.
  • CHINESE CHARACTER FOR DOG! Your coin includes the Chinese character for dog!
  • UNIQUE MINTAGE! Limited to 15,888 coins worldwide.
  • HALF OUNCE PURE SILVER! Your coin is crafted from 1/2 ounce of 99.99% pure silver.
  • GST/HST EXEMPT! Your coin is GST/HST exempt.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.

Design:

Canadian artist Simon Ng has created a stylized depiction of a dog standing above a traditional Chinese latticework that incorporates a rose, one of the dog's lucky flowers. A rose also appears on the dog's chest, while onciduim and cymbidium orchids, the dog's other floral charms, fill the remainder of its silhouette. The Chinese character for dog appears to the right. Beautiful engraving captures the energy of the loyal dog personality that is always poised and ready to play—or protect.

Did you know…
  • The Year of the Dog occurs every 12 years—1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006—and now, 2018. However, the Chinese New Year shifts annually due to the Spring Festival, and this affects the zodiac for people born in January and February. For example, the Year of the Dog begins on February 16, 2018 and ends on February 4, 2019.
  • Dog people generally enjoy better health due to their active nature and happy disposition.
  • Dog people thrive in careers where they can serve humanity (as a nurse, lawyer, counsellor, scientist).
  • Famous Dog personalities include Cher, Winston Churchill, Jane Fonda, Prince William, Connie Chung, Elvis Presley, Terry Fox, the Dionne Quintuplets and Eugene Levy.
  • The amiable dog is happiest with horse, rabbit and tiger, but it doesn't understand rooster, and will never get along with sheep or overconfident dragon.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

          It is a nice coin - based on the price, I think it was good value for what we got. It's a novel way of keeping up with the various Chinese years.
