This 2018 $15 Canadian 1 oz. Silver Year of the Dog Proof is the ninth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's Lunar Series, which is perfect for enthusiasts of Chinese culture, as well as dog lovers. It was struck from .9999 fine silver. Mintage of this coin was capped at 10,888 pieces because eight is considered a lucky number in Chinese culture.

Artistic Dog Design by Aries Cheung

Like virtually all other coins struck at the Royal Canadian Mint, this one bears Susanna Blunt's right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Unlike effigies of the Queen that are on coins from other parts of the world, this one lacks a tiara or crown. It is flanked by inscriptions that together provide the monarch's name and abbreviated title, which together read, "ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA."

Aries Cheung's reverse design features a dog playfully jumping around. Behind the dog, a rainbow falls into auspicious clouds, which are reflected in the canine's fur. The Chinese character for 'dog' is inscribed under it. Arching over the top along the rim is the inscription "CANADA 2018," while the rim inscription at the bottom is the coin's face value, "15 DOLLARS."
