Introduction

As a long-term partner of the Perth Mint, Tavex is pleased to offer one of world’s finest minted gold bullion coins, the 2018 Australian Lunar Year of the Dog. The gold coin is part of Perth Mint’s praised chronological gold bullion collection, the Australian Lunar Series II, where each coin in the series is only minted once every twelve years in accordance with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. In addition, the most popular one-ounce version in the series has a limited annual mintage of only 30,000 pieces, giving the coin a considerable collector’s premium in the secondary market.

The Year of the Dog gold coin contains 99.99% pure gold and is produced with a special minting technique that ensures the coin is in proof-like condition, meaning it has exceptionally shiny and mat surfaces coupled with the richest of detail. This bullion coin is truly a piece of breathtaking gold art suitable for collectors with an eye for beauty and those who wish to give their loved ones something really memorable and special.

History

Australian Lunar gold coin - Year of the Dog

The Chinese lunar calendar is today used by many for Taoist cosmology. It is believed that, depending on the year of the zodiac when a person is born, a special relationship exists between theperson’s personality and the animal that constitutes part of the Chinesezodiac. The animals in the zodiac are supposed to be of symbolic nature, where each animal is a representation of a specific group of characteristics andtraits that can be found in every human being. There are twelve animals in theChinese zodiac, each of them being celebrated once every twelve years. The year of the dog was celebrated in 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018.

Those born in the year of the dog are considered to be persons who bear a strong sense of loyalty towards others and will do anything for the person they cherish the most. Likewise, they are ready to help others and tend to put the interest of others before their own. People born in the year of the dog are said to be people who cherish a quiet life in the companionship of the family. They are also considered to be honest and sincere, disapproving of evil acts and dishonest gain. Because of their truthfulness, they will sometimes have issues coping with other people’s bad behaviour. Other people tend to have a harder time establishing a relationship with people born under the sign of the dog as they tend to be more conservative and cautious. But once friendship is established, they become excellent companions as they will remain faithful in maintaining the relationship. It can therefore be seen that the Australian Gold Lunar Year of the Dog coin is an ideal gift for whoever you love or respect, since giving a Gold Lunar coin means that you are showing affection by immortalising the person’s year of birth and particular virtues in pure and precious golden artwork.

Obverse

The obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Australia’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Australia has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Above the Queen’s effigy is the text “ELIZABETH II and “AUSTRALIA”. Inscribed below the effigy are the designer’s initials “IRB” – Ian Rank-Broadley. At the bottom, in semi-circle is inscribed the size of the coin, purity "9999 GOLD", the year of the mintage, and the denomination of the coin.

Reverse

The reverse depicts a labrador retriever standing on rocks and featuring a stylised pine tree in the background. Inscribed above is the Chinese character for “dog”, and below the dog is the text "Year of the Dog".

Packaging

Each coin is individually packaged in a hard plastic capsule by the Perth Mint. Multiples of 20 coins are available in wholesale packages.
