They are bundles of energy, but they are also known for showering family and friends with support and love. Celebrate the Year of the Dog with a scallop-shaped coin that pays tribute to all who are born under this sign! The reverse commemorates 2018 as the Year of the Dog with a design that emphasizes the noble character of its animal representative. Viewed in side profile, the dog is the very image of a faithful protector and courageous companion as it looks beyond the coins scalloped rim. Beneath its muzzle lies the engraved Chinese character for dog, while the timeless beauty of magnolia blossoms adds an ornamental flourish to the left side of the coin. These ancient blooms are far more symbolic, however, for they represent nobility and purity, and are a fitting floral tribute to a sign associated with some of humanitys more virtuous qualities.
