Celebrate the Year of the Dog with APMEX and The Perth Mint
The Perth Mint launched its Gold Lunar Series I program in 1996 with the Silver Lunar Series I following in 1999. Both series got a reboot in 2008 after seeing worldwide success. The tradition continues for 2018 as The Perth Mint celebrates the Year of the Dog with two of the most popular dog breeds: A Labrador retriever and a German shepherd.
The 2018 Year of the Dog Gold coin features a Labrador Retriever on rocks with a stylized pine tree in the background. This beautiful lunar design also incorporates the Chinese character for "Dog" and the inscription "Year of the Dog". The 2018 Year of the Dog Silver coin showcases an adult German shepherd with a puppy, while also incorporating the same Chinese characters.
Gold and Silver Lunar Series coins are highly collected because of the yearly changing designs and limited mintages, which add collectibility on top of the metal content. Each 2018 Perth Mint Lunar coin contains .9999 Gold or .9999 fine Silver.
The Australian Lunar series showcases the 12 animals that play a part in the China’s ancient lunar calendar. This was the original Lunar Series and is today the most popular around the world. The Year of the Dog coins are a great way to acquire and invest in Precious Metals.
The Perth Mint is known for producing some of the most beautiful bullion products on the market including this most recent addition to the Lunar Series. We offer these 2018 Year of the Dog coins in a variety of sizes to allow you to invest in the product that matches your investment strategy.
