The Rwandan Wildlife Series put the nation of Rwanda on the map in the world of silver bullion coining, and that popularity has helped spur the production of the Lunar Ounce Collection. Released for the first time in 2017 with the Year of the Rooster, the coins have beautiful shattered-glass backgrounds and stylized images of the animal represented on the Zodiac for a given year.
2018 is the Year of the Dog on the Lunar Calendar. The 2018 1 oz Proof Silver Rwandan Lunar Dog Coin is available with an obverse design that stuns. The stylized dog on the obverse appears to run across the design field. There are various engravings on this face. Surrounding the design field are engravings of “Lunar Ounce,” “2018,” and “1 oz Fine Silver 999.” Within the design field is the Chinese character for dog at the top and “Year of the Dog” at the bottom.
The reverse of all Proof Silver Rwandan Lunar Dog Coins features the official seal of Rwanda. Engravings on this face of the coin are featured in one of the two official languages of Rwanda. These particular engravings are in Kinyarwanda, a dialect of the Rwanda-Rundi language that is spoken by 12 million people living in Rwanda, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, and parts of southern Uganda.
The engravings on the reverse include the name of the National Bank of Rwanda, the Republic of Rwanda, and the face value of the coin in letters as well as numbers. Each coin has a 50 Franc face value.
