Description

Chinese Lunar symbols have melded into mainstream Canadian culture, and the Royal Canadian Mint is marking the 2018 Year of the Dog with this $15 pure silver coin containing just under one ounce of pure silver. The coin is double struck with a frosted cameo finish, the highest quality produced by the Royal Canadian Mint. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt. Mintage is limited to 18,888 pieces worldwide.

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 coinÕs scalloped rim. Beneath its muzzle lies the engraved Chinese character for Òdog,Ó 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 humanityÕs more virtuous qualities. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

People born in the years 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018, are all ÒYear of the DogÓ. Dog year people are usually independent, sincere, loyal, valiant, clever, responsible, decisive and courageous.
