2018 1oz UK Lunar Series Year of the Dog Gold Coin

As an official distributor for the Royal Mint, CoinInvest is pleased to bring you the 2018 1oz UK Lunar Series Year of the Dog Gold coin. The famous Shēngxiào collection is inspired by the animal characters of the Chinese Zodiac Calendar and this beautiful 2018 1oz Gold coin celebrates the Year of the Dog.  These superbly designed gold coins make the ideal gift for those born under the sign of the dog and, of course, they're an excellent choice for investors and collectors.

The fifth addition to the UK Lunar Series

The 2018 Year of the Dog Coin marks five years of one of the Royal Mint's most popular series. The Shēngxiào collection made its debut in 2014 with the Year of the Horse coin and each release blends Chinese history and mythology with uniquely British details.  The 2014 Year of the Horse coin was based on the Uffington Horse in Oxfordshire, for example, while theYear of the Sheep coinfocused on the Swalesdale breed in 2017.
For the Year of the Dog 2018, artist Wuon-Gean Ho has created a truly impressive design featuring a joyously leaping Corgi - as many collectors will be aware, HM Queen Elizabeth II has famously kept Corgis as pets since childhood. The coin's obverse bears Jody Clark's 'fifth portrait' of Her Majesty.

A smart buy for collectors and investors

Struck from .9999 fine gold, these 1oz coins really are a smart buy. HM Queen Elizabeth recently celebrated her Sapphire Jubilee and this may well be one of the last major collections to bear her portrait – an important fact that isn't overlooked by investors who are quick to snap up these strictly limited-edition gold coins. 

Highlights include:

  • One troy ounce of 999.9% pure gold
  • A premium product from the UK Royal Mint
  • Fifth release in the UK Lunar Series or Shēngxiào collection - inspired by the Chinese Zodiac and British tradition
  • Reverse features leaping Corgi – the breed is synonymous with the British Royal Family
  • Obverse bears the 'fifth portrait' of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark
  • Limited mintage of just 8,888
  • Free from VAT and CGT Exempt
  • Legal UK currency with a face value of £100

CoinInvest is pleased to bring you the 2018 1oz UK Lunar Year of the Dog gold coin. This beautiful limited mintage coin is a must for serious collectors and, like all legal tender British currency, it's VAT Free and CGT exempt.
