Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II collection has reached its penultimate release in 2018 as the Year of the Dog descends upon the Lunar Calendar. There are a total of 12 animals on the Zodiac, and the Lunar Series II collection captures each one on beautiful silver and gold coins. The latest Year of the Dog design in the gold release features a Labrador Retriever. Today, 2018 1 oz Gold Australian Dog Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you sealed in an acrylic capsule.
  • Eleventh coin design for the Lunar Series II collection!
  • Consists of Two Troy ounces of .9999 fine gold in BU condition.
  • Face value of $200 (AUD) is fully backed by Australia’s government.
  • Obverse includes a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse features a Labrador Retriever.
  • Designs on reverse from Ing Ing Jong.

Artist Ing Ing Jong joined the Perth Mint as a coin designer in 2011, and began designing the images for the Lunar Series II collection starting in 2013. Her life’s work prior to this came as an illustrator and she has an admiration for Disney illustrators who were always able to convey human emotions through character designs with ease.

Your 2018 2 oz Gold Australian Dog Coin is available for purchase in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, though minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks are possible. These result not from handling, but instead from the production process.

Labrador Retrievers are the Year of the Dog representative on 2018 Gold Australian Dog coinage. The Lab, as it’s affectionately known, is a gun-retriever dog often used by hunters. However, their character traits also make them very obedient and loyal service dogs for the elderly, the blind, and those with disabilities.

The reverse of the 2018 2 oz Gold Australian Dog Coins features the Labrador Retriever as it stands on an outcrop of rocks. The background features a stylized pine tree in the image, and engravings include “Year of the Dog,” the Chinese character for dog, and the Perth Mint’s “P” mint mark.

On the obverse of all Gold Australian Dog Coins is the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is captured in right-profile relief in this fourth-generation effigy from Ian Rank-Broadley which was created in 1998.

The Perth Mint was originally a British Royal Mint facility in Australia, and today is owned by the state of Western Australia. It operates independent of the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra, and has legal tender status for its coins through the Currency Act of 1965.

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.
