Product Description

Perth Mint started its first Lunar Series in 1996. This inaugural series, known as Lunar Series I, featured only gold coins from 1996 to 1998. Silver coins were added in 1999, allowing the series to complete a 12-year cycle by 2010. Currently, 2006 5 oz Australian Silver Lunar Dog Coins are available online from BGASC.


  • 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.

Each 2006 5 oz Australian Silver Lunar Dog Coin is presented in a protective plastic capsule. This 5 oz silver coin in the Lunar Series I is one of the larger weights available and often has one of the lowest mintages in the series. The 2006 5 oz Lunar Dog had a mintage of just 5,080 coins.


The obverse of the 2006 Australian Silver Lunar Dog features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. 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 depicts a German shepherd. Renowned for their intelligence and trainability, German Shepherds are ranked as the third most intelligent dog breed, following the Border Collie and the Poodle. Their loyalty and protective nature make them excellent service dogs and companions.


People born in the Dog year are often described as good listeners and excellent communicators, able to understand and empathize with the perspectives of others. The Dog is one of the most popular and widely celebrated animals in the Chinese zodiac, with numerous festivals and celebrations held in its honor, particularly during the Dog year.
