Since 1998, the Royal Canadian Mint has commemorated the Chinese Lunar Calendar with a sterling silver coin featuring a gold-plated cameo that highlights the zodiac sign for the year. Welcome the Dog as it takes the place of honour surrounded by all twelve animals of the Chinese horoscope.
The Dog is arguably the most likable zodiac of the Chinese calendar. People born during the Year of the Dog are honest, intelligent and straightforward; they are true and faithful friends! Years of the Dog: 1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006.
