The Lunar series of the Royal Mint excites again in this fourth year with an extraordinary design. Not only the guilloche pattern in the background is new. The coins are also sent in blisters. What stays as before is the unified and unique design created from fusing British minting tradition with influences of the Chinese culture in the coins.

According to the Chinese horoscope dogs are known to be sensible, social and loyal. Some examples for years of the dog are 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1958, 1946 and 1934. As such the coins of the Shēngxiào line are very suitable as birthday gifts for people born in said years.
