**Silver and Dogs**

Coins-World | Kepi

**SILVER and DOGS**...      Man's best friend and a hunk of that silver stuff!    What's more American than that?    haha      It's my 2018 Australian Mint "Year of the Dog" 2 oz. Silver Perth Lunar Coin!   Wow! That's a mouthful!   This beautiful coin portrays Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse along with the date, face value, silver weight and purity. The designer is Ian Rank-Broadley.   The reverse shows a German Shepard with puppy lying in the grass with Chinese peony flowers in the background.  The design also has the Chinese  character for dog, the inscription "Year of the Dog" and The Perth Mint's traditional "P" mintmark.   This Sovereign coin is backed by the Australian government.     The birth years for people born in the Lunar Year of the Dog include 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018.  Those fortunate enough to be born in these years ( LIKE ME)  are said to be loyal, amiable, kind and friendly.   ; )          Thanks for looking at my blog!  Any comments would be great!

Happy Year of the Dog! I like 2 oz coins too. All the details. The reverse proof shows them off.

Nice pick up. I purchase some modern silver coins also. Like you, it is stuff that the design talks to me.

That is a nice coin. I especially like 2 ounce coins. The details come up so nicely and they have a great heft in your hand! Thanks for the informative blog. I'm not in that year range. Guess I'll have to wait for us old dudes to come up!! Thanks!!

Very nice pick up. They always do a good job. Especially with animals. The puppies get me nothing like it I hope you enjoy it a much as I did! If I bought every coin I liked with animals would-be broke. Congratulations on a beauty. Mike.
