Celebrate the eleventh sign in the Chinese zodiac with the fifth coin in our series. The tenth-ounce coin is struck in fine gold and is the only coin in the range finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard. The dog is the fifth animal in The Shēngxiào Collection brought to life by artist Wuon-Gean Ho, continuing her series of designs that began with the Year of the Horse. The design depicts a terrier, a much-loved breed of dog that has been portrayed by artists for centuries.

“It’s been wonderful working with the craftsmen and women at The Royal Mint. I’m incredibly impressed and humbled at the amount of technical mastery and knowledge that they have.” Wuon-Gean Ho
