2018 1 oz UK Lunar Year of the Dog Silver Coin

Add the 2018 1oz UK Lunar Series Year of the Dog Coin to your collection today with coininvest.com. The fifth edition in the prestigious Shēngxiào collection from the British Royal Mint features a unique new design celebrating the Chinese Year of the Dog for 2018. This superbly struck silver coin is a premium product with the Royal Mint's hallmark quality and attention to detail and it's a must for investors and collectors.

The Royal Mint's famous Shēngxiào collection is based on the characters of the Chinese Zodiac and celebrates thousands of years of Oriental history and mythology. The 12-year series began in 2014 and immediately grabbed the attention of the world's numismatics. The series' popularity and the fact that each coin is struck to bullion standard from one troy ounce of fine .999 silver has ensured that it's of equal interest to investors.

A subtle nod to 'Britishness' is one of the unique aspects of the UK Lunar Series. The 2014 Year of the Horse coin featured an image of the Uffington White Horse while 2015's Year of the Sheep coin showed two Yorkshire Swaledale sheep. Each coin in the series also features the number '8', a symbol of luck in Chinese culture.  For the 2018 1oz UK Lunar Year of the Dog Coin, UK Chinese artist Wuon-Gean Ho has opted for a dog leaping joyously across the reverse of the coin.  The coin's obverse is graced by the definitive 'fifth portrait' of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark against a guilloche style background that is new for 2018.
