Struck from 1/2 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver, this 2018 Lunar Year of the Dog Silver Specimen measures 34 mm in diameter, with a 15,888 coin mintage limit. Those born in the year of the Dog are loyal, good natured people, who are known for their service to humanity, including Mother Teresa and Winston Churchill.

Beautifully Detailed Dog Design

A stylized Dog adorns the reverse, above a traditional Chinese lattice design, accented with the lucky flowers of the Dog, roses and cymbidium orchids. The remarkable design by Canadian artist Simon Ng is inscribed "2018 CANADA 10 DOLLARS" above the image, with the Chinese character representing Dog in the right field area.

On the obverse, "ELIZABETH II" and "D. G. REGINA" surround the likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, sculpted by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt.
