The Chinese Lunar New Year is right around the corner. 2018 is the Year of the Dog and Bullion Exchanges is celebrating with the release of the Royal Canadian Mint’s 1 oz. Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coin. This year of the dog coin features a Dog Privy mark on the obverse. The Royal Canadian Mint is one of the top mints in the world. They are known for their superior quality, high-tech coin features, and always pushing the boundaries of what was previously thought to be impossible.

Lunar Coins: Year of the Dog

Lunar-themed coins have become very popular amongst bullion collectors and investors in recent years. Additionally, the Royal Canadian Mint has been one of the first mints in the world to establish a Lunar Calendar program. The lunar calendar features a different animal in each twelve-year cycle. Also, the Royal Canadian Mint has an immensely popular Silver Canadian Maple leaf program. The mint annually releases a separate privy-marked edition of the coin corresponding to the Chinese Lunar calendar. This year’s coin features the year of the dog as the Privy Mark.

These coins strike multiple times to give it its recognizable shiny reverse-proof finish. This coin is .9999 fine silver. It comes in 1 troy ounce. Finally, only 100,000 of them will mint this year.
