Why buy this $15 Canadian 2018 Year of the Dog Silver Lunar Lotus Proof?

This Silver Lunar 2018 $15 Canadian Year of the Dog Lotus Proof is a great option for collectors of lunar coins and dog lovers alike. It was struck from .9999 fine silver at the Royal Canadian Mint. This coin is part of a mintage of 18,888 pieces, a number that was chosen because "8" is considered a lucky number in Chinese culture.

Adorable Dog Design by Three Degrees Creative Group

The obverse of this shaped coin features Susanna Blunts' right-side effigy of reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II. Unlike other portraits of the Queen on other coins, this one shows her with no tiara or crow. The four sets of inscriptions encircling her image include "15 DOLLARS," "CANADA," "ELIZABETH II" and "2018."

On the reverse is a right-side profile of a dog that was designed by Three Degrees Creative Group. The image portrays the dog as a faithful companion and noble protector. Magnolia blossoms spread throughout the left side of the coin as symbols of nobility and purity. In the lower right is an inscription of the Chinese symbol for "dog."

Perfect Proof 70
