According to the Chinese zodiac, 2018 is the year of "Man's most loyal friend!". Those born under the sign of the Dog are loyal guardians and friends who are honest, kind and eternally compassionate. Oftentimes, they're bundles of energy; but they're also known for showering family and friends with kindness, support and love.

Design:

The reverse commemorates 2018 as the Year of the Dog with a design that emphasizes the noble character of its animal representative. Viewed in side profile, the dog is the very image of a faithful protector and courageous companion as it looks beyond the coin's scalloped rim. Beneath its muzzle lies the engraved Chinese character for "dog," while the timeless beauty of magnolia blossoms adds an ornamental flourish to the left side of the coin. These ancient blooms are far more symbolic, however, for they represent nobility and purity, and are a fitting floral tribute to a sign associated with some of humanity's more virtuous qualities. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • If you were born under the sign of the Dog, your lucky numbers are 3, 4 and 9!
  • According to the Chinese zodiac, the Dog is most compatible with the Rabbit (those born in 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011). The least compatible signs are believed to be the Dragon, the Goat and the Rooster.
  • The Dog's lucky colours are red, green and purple.
  • Magnolias are a symbol of nobility and purity, and have been cultivated for thousands of years. In ancient China, the magnolia symbolized feminine beauty.
  • People born in January or February should consult the Chinese lunar calendar, since the lunar New Year falls on a different day each year. This celebration is better known as the Spring Festival and coincides with the first day of spring—a date that shifts from year to year depending upon the lunar cycle and solar year.
