Product Details

Perth Mint introduced its first-ever Lunar Series in 1996. This original program, known as Lunar Series I, initially featured only gold coins from 1996 to 1998. Silver coins joined the series in 1999, completing a full 12-year cycle through 2010. Today, you can purchase the 2006 5 oz Australian Silver Lunar Dog Coins online from BullionMax.

Coin Highlights:

  • Comes with a protective plastic capsule!
  • 8th design in the Lunar Series I silver program!
  • Limited mintage of just 5,080 coins!
  • Contains 5 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • The face value of $8 (AUD) is fully backed by the Australian government.
  • On the obverse is a bust of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • The reverse depicts a German shepherd.

Traditionally, those born in the Dog year are said to be compatible with those born in the years of the Tiger and the Horse, as they share similar values and energy levels. On the other hand, they may experience conflicts with those born in the years of the Rooster and the Ox due to potential personality clashes.

All 2006 5 oz Australian Silver Lunar Dog Coins come with a protective plastic capsule. This 5 oz silver coin is one of the largest in the Lunar Series I collection and has one of the lowest mintages, with only 5,080 coins produced.

The obverse of the 2006 Australian Silver Lunar Dog features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. The Queen is shown in right-profile relief, wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.

The reverse of the 2006 5 oz Silver Lunar Dog Coin showcases a German shepherd. Known for their intelligence and trainability, German Shepherds are ranked as the third most intelligent dog breed, following the Border Collie and the Poodle. Their intelligence, combined with loyalty and protective instincts, makes them excellent service dogs and companions.
