Dillon Gage Metals is once again the source for the Royal Canadian Mint’s Silver Lunar Privy bullion coin. Since last five years, Dillon Gage Metals has had the sole distribution of this unique RCM Silver Maple Leaf. To honor the Lunar symbol, this year’s coin features an intricately engraved labrador retriever for the privy seal.
The dog represents those born in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and now 2018. People, who are born in the Year of the Dog have similar qualities of a dog as they are loyal and honest. In Chinese culture, if a dog happens to come to a house, it symbolizes the coming of good fortune and prosperity. This year’s Lunar Privy bullion coin is the perfect gift or keepsake for those born under the Year of the Dog sign.
The coin is crafted in the Royal Canadian Mint’s exceptional 99.99 percent pure silver. It features a serrated edge and a unique reverse-proof finish. This coin is the highest denomination made available on a 1-ounce silver bullion coin – $5 CAN. The coin depicts Canada’s beloved monarch, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, on the obverse and the iconic Canadian Maple leaf on the reverse. The coin is 38 millimeters in diameter and weighs 31.110 grams.
This limited-mintage special release will be available to authorized dealers from Dillon Gage.
