The Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Bullion Coin Series
2006 Year of the Dog
PandaAmerica offers an exciting array of bullion coin options for investors seeking to add precious metals to their portfolios. Among the most popular gold and silver bullion coins are those from the Australian Lunar Series, with designs based on the twelve different animals associated with the ancient Chinese calendar. The 2006-dated coins feature the Year of the Dog.

These magnificent coins represent more than an investment opportunity. 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.

Beautiful designs and limited mintages mean these bullion coins are also sought by collectors, giving them potential for numismatic appreciation over time.

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.

All coins in this series are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

Format & Mintage
Australian Lunar gold bullion coins are available in eight sizes. The 1 kilo, 10 oz. and 2 oz. coin mintages are unlimited, but no more than 30,000 1 oz., 40,000 1/2 oz., and 60,000 1/4 oz., 80,000 1/10 oz., and 100,000 1/20 oz. coins will be issued.

Australian Lunar silver bullion coins are available in seven sizes. The 1 Kilo, 1/2 Kilo, 10 oz., 5 oz., and 2 oz. coin mintages are unlimited, but no more than 300,000 1 oz., and 500,000 1/2 oz. coins will be issued.

Metal, Purity & Quality
All Australian Lunar coins are minted from 99.99% pure gold or 99.9% pure silver, in bullion quality, with a shiny design on a frosted background.

The reverse design for the 2006-dated gold coins depicts a Beagle. In silver, the reverse design depicts a German shepherd.

The Chinese character for “dog” and the 2006 year-date also appear in the design. The Ian Rank-Broadly effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse.

All Australian Lunar bullion coins are packaged in protective acrylic capsules.
