This is a nice coin


While I do not have this particular coin, I have the one from the year of the dragon of similar design. The jade was glued on only. But it is a very nice coin in that it displayed well and there is no other design that is like that. I can see that this would have special meaning for people who was born in the year of the dog, or likes dogs or a special occasion in the year of the dog. The jade should be real jade, it's from Laos. I would say buy it, as the price seems relatively reasonable and it is attractive.

I won't buy this coin


I like all full silver or gold. Gold plating comes out at adverse temperature. Also, I personally believe that gold n silver mix don't give actual prosperity. In addition, it's not a Canadian made coin.

The stated mintage is 2888. Is that 2888 world-wide?


Hello and thank you for asking. The mintage is 2,888 world wide.

My question is " Why do you have "Cat Paw Prints" on the Year of the Dog Coin instead of putting "Dog Paw Prints" ???? I have been a wildlife tracker for most of my life...teaching courses,photographing and enjoying the great outdoors.There is a huge distinction between these two families paw prints !!! Have a great day...Please contact me if you would like to discuss this...


hi Louis, thank you for your question. We spoke to the supplier of this coin, as it is not an RCM design, and they have pointed out that often the difference between cat and dog prints is the visibility of claws for dogs. They chose to use a more simplified paw, without claws, for aesthetic and technical reasons, given the very small size on the coin. This simplified version is intended as an artistic representation. Thanks again!
