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 second coin in this silver proof series - following on from the Beagle - is the Border Collie. One of the most popular dog breeds for Australians, the Border Collie has seemingly boundless energy, an eagerness to please, and impressive intelligence, allowing it to quickly learn new tricks, 

Depicting a Border Collie pup playfully gripping a frisbee, each coin is struck from half an ounce of 99.99% pure silver, and  housed in a case with certificate of authenticity.
