Brief History
The Chinese Lunar Calendar is based on a 12 year cycle, each year in the cycle is associated with a different animal. The Perth Mint in Australia started issuing series of Chinese Lunar Calendar Coins, in gold and silver, in 1996, which was the Year of the Rat. We rarely manage to buy any of the older years, which tend to be very hard to source. We recommend that you buy this year's coins when we have them available.
The 2006 lunar year of the dog will run from Jan 29, 2006 to Feb 17, 2007.

Gold Beagles
The canine breed used for the model of this year's gold year of the dog coins is the beagle. Whilst we thought a golden retriever may have been an obvious choice, we think beagles have had a bad year in the UK, with the government's ban on hunting with dogs many beagles will have been made redundant. Here's an easy way to keep a pack of gold beagles at home, with no mess, vet's bills or grooming. We think gold beagles will also make a great change from gold eagles.
The silver series of bullion coins will feature the German Shepherd, popularly known as the Alsatian.
