Regular price $65.00 Sale

In 2018, the Chinese Lunar Calendar celebrates the Year of the Dog. How appropriate then, that the Perth Mint has produced this series, a tribute to the cutest of all dogs - the young Puppies!

The first coin in this silver proof series is the Beagle. Adored for their soulful and kind expressions, beagle puppies are active, full of fun and renowned for following their nose wherever a familiar or enticing scent leads them. It is this trait that has led to a number of "Beagle Brigades" at airports across the world, sniffing down contraband cargo inside incoming passenger luggage!

Struck from half an ounce of 99.99% pure silver, each Beagle Puppy coin is housed in a case and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
