The Australian Lunar 2006 Year of the Dog
Gold and Silver Proof Coin Issues

PandaAmerica is offering a variety of these Proof Coins for collectors and investors that will appreciate the coins' extremely limited mintage. Beautiful designs and limited mintages mean these proof coins are also sought by collectors, giving them potential for numismatic appreciation over time. They also make ideal gifts for friends or family, a Chinese New Year gift for business associates, or a present for anyone born in the year of the dog – 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, and 2006.

The year of the dog runs from January 29, 2006 to February 17, 2007. The Chinese believe the animal ruling the year in which a person is born has a profound influence on their personality. Dogs are regarded as loyal, trustworthy, honest, and ethical.

Dog lovers everywhere will adore the Golden Retriever portrayed on the reverse of each silver coin and Chow on the reverse of each gold coin.
