Characterised by outstanding craftsmanship, iconic artistry and assured purity, The Perth Mint has revealed Australia’s official bullion coin program for 2018. 

Issued annually since 1987, the trusted releases offer an outstanding choice of pure gold, silver and platinum coins, each authorised by the Australian Government as official legal tender.

Extremely popular with investors, Australian Lunar coins celebrate the 12 animals of the Chinese lunar calendar. In 2018, the coin artistry portrays a Labrador Retriever on the 99.99% pure gold releases, and German Shepherds on the 99.99% pure silver coins, marking the Year of the Dog. 

The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar dog include 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be loyal, amiable, kind and friendly.

The Australian Lunar 2018 Year of the Dog Gold Bullion Coin Series is available in multiple sizes and mintages. Production of the coins, such as this coin, with unlimited mintages will close at the end of 2018 when The Perth Mint will declare each coin's official mintage. 


Each bullion coin is presented in protective acrylic capsules.
