Year of the Dog
2006 is the “Year of the Dog” and is the 11th coin in the series.
According the Chinese Zodiac, people born under the influence of the “Dog” are said to be loyal, honest, amiable and kind.
The most defining personality trait of those born in a Dog year is their loyalty. They will never abandon their friends, family or work.
The birth years of the Lunar Dog are 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018.
The “Year of the Dog” is celebrated with an image of a dog standing on a grass field in an attentive position. The Chinese character for “Dog” is engraved on the right side of the coin near the edge. The year of issue “1996” is shown vertically, to the left of the motif. The fine weight and purity of “1 OZ 9999 GOLD” is inscripted below the image of the dog.
The reverse side shows a right side profile of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II with crown. The portrait of the Queen was created by artist Ian Rank-Broadley. The inscriptions around the outer edge are the name of the regent “ELIZABETH II”, the country of origin “AUSTRALIA” and the nominal value of “100 DOLLARS”.
