Each 2018 1 oz Silver Rwandan Lunar Dog Coin in this listing is in BU condition. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear. However, minor flaws are possible from the natural coining process at the mint and include potential breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks.
The Rwandan Lunar Ounce series debuted in 2017 with the Year of the Rooster. Like other lunar-themed programs, it will follow a 12-year release cycle and feature a new design with each passing year. The Zodiac is the inspiration for this series, and as such its 12 different animals representing various birth years will feature in the collection.
On the obverse of all 2018 1 oz Silver Rwandan Lunar Dog Coins is the new Year of the Dog design. Representing those born in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018, the Year of the Dog design has a stylized image of a dog in the center of the design field along with engravings of the Chinese character for dog, the phrase “Year of the Dog,” and the coin’s weight, purity, and metal content.
The reverse of Silver Rwandan Lunar Ounce coins features the seal of Rwanda. All coins from BH Mayer Mint in this release are backed by the Central Bank of Rwanda and feature face values in Rwandan Francs (RWF). The engravings on this face of the coin are all featured in a local Rwandan dialect.
