Golden Retriever and Chow Chow Appear on
Year of the Dog Proof Coins from Perth Mint

Dog lovers are having a field day with the new Year of the Dog coins from Australia's Perth Mint, since four different breeds are featured. A German Shepherd and a Beagle are pictured, respectively, on the silver and gold bullion Brilliant Uncirculated coins, while a Golden Retriever and a Chow Chow appear, respectively, on the limited edition silver and gold Proof coins. Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse of each coin.

The 2006 Australian Lunar Silver Proof Issue celebrates the Year of the Dog with a design featuring a Golden Retriever - a devoted, responsible dog that loves human contact. The Chinese character for "dog" and The Perth Mint's traditional "P" mintmark also appear in the design.

These are struck from 99.9% pure silver, in editions limited to 2,500 1 oz. coins and just 100 coins weighing a full kilogram. Each 1 oz. coin is accompanied by a silver-plated pin in the shape of a Golden Retriever. Each comes handsomely packaged with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The Gold Proof issues feature a Chow Chow - an intelligent and protective dog that originated in China. The Chinese character for "dog" and The Perth Mint's traditional "P" mintmark also appear in the design.

The 1/4 oz. coin is struck from 99.99% pure gold in proof quality; it is housed in a green leatherette case, which is presented within an attractive outer sleeve and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Only 7,000 individual 1/4 oz. coins will be issued worldwide.
