The dog Wuon-Gean chose to incorporate into her coin design is the terrier. Dogs of the terrier type have been known in the UK for many hundreds of years and as early as the Middle Ages, these game breeds were portrayed by writers and painters. The trend for depicting terriers in art boomed in the nineteenth century. “The dog depicted in this design is a mixed breed, looking like a West Highland White Terrier crossed with a Jack Russell. I wanted to show the energy and exuberance of a more compact dog. Bouncy, full of life and very playful, terriers have a quick intelligence, lots of loyalty and big personalities.”
