Gold Coast Bullion is proud to present the 2018 1/2 oz Lunar Series Year of the Dog Gold Coin from The Perth Mint.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land. 

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. The Dog is the eleventh sign of the Chinese Zodiac. The Dog is a symbol of loyalty and honesty. People born in the year of the dog are ferociously loyal and always dependable. They are naturally amiable and easy to get along with.
