The Lunar Series II collection of gold and silver coins from Perth Mint is one of the most exciting annual releases for investors and collectors. The coin program has some of the greatest variety available, featuring not just a new design for each year on the Lunar Calendar, but separate designs in each given year for the gold and silver bullion versions. Today, 2018 1 Kilo Silver Australian Dog Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you inside of an acrylic capsule.
  • Eleventh coin release from the Lunar Series II collection!
  • Consists of One Kilo, or 32.15 Troy ounces, of .9999 fine silver in BU condition.
  • Face value $30 (AUD) is fully backed by Australia’s government.
  • Obverse includes the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse features German Shepherds as Year of the Dog representatives.
  • Designs on reverse from Ing Ing Jong.

Each release year of the Lunar Series II collection features a different animal from the 12-character cycle of the Zodiac. The 11th position is held by the dog, and the Perth Mint has two different designs available from the Year of the Dog release. While these 2018 1 Kilo Silver Australian Dog Coins have the German Shepherd, Jong’s Gold Dog design includes the Labrador Retriever.

All 2018 1 Kilo Silver Australian Dog Coins listed here today are in BU condition. Coins in this condition have no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws as a result of the production process. These minor issues range from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks.

On the obverse of all Australian coinage is Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait. The Queen ascended to the throne of England in 1952, and today is both the longest reigning British monarch and the current longest reigning monarch alive. This design is the fourth-generation effigy of Her Majesty to appear on Australian coins, having been designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.

The reverse of the 2018 1 Kilo Silver Australian Dog Coin includes the Year of the Dog design from illustrator Ing Ing Jong. Her creation features an adult German Shepherd lying in a field with a young puppy, and includes a background adorned by Chinese peony flowers. Engravings also include the Perth Mint’s “P” mint mark, the phrase “Year of the Dog,” and the Chinese character for dog.

Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint in Australia. It was founded in 1899 as the third and final British Royal Mint facility, joining the Sydney Mint and Melbourne Mint. Today it is the only one of those three remaining and operates independently of the younger Royal Australian Mint in Canberra.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
