Gilded coins offer a brilliant combination of the two metals most investors prefer to purchase. These 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Dog Coins are struck in .9999 fine silver content with a layer of 24-karat gold applied to the reverse design field. However, that layer of gold is used sparingly to highlight one particular part of the design.
The reverse of all 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Dog Coins in this listing has the Year of the Dog design from Ing Ing Jong. Featuring two German shepherds lying in a field, the adult dog in the background has the gilded finish while the puppy in the foreground does not. Other engravings include the Chinese character for dog and the “P” mint mark of Perth Mint.
On the obverse of the 2018 Silver Australian Dog is Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has featured on British and commonwealth currency since 1952. Her effigy is routinely updated to reflect her age, with this particular design serving as the fourth-generation image. It was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
All 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Dog Coins in this listing are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, but minor flaws from striking can occur. These are limited to breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks.
Your Silver Australian Dog gilded coin ships in a Perth Mint clamshell, which is housed in a themed presentation box with Year of the Dog artwork. The coins also come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
