Need to know:

Gold continues to be desired, as it has been for centuries, for both its beauty and value, these limited edition lunar coins are the perfect way to appreciate its precious qualities.

The UK government assures the weight and purity of each coin it produces, these lunar coins are designed for mass storage and safe transit, providing exceptional convenience for all silver bullion coin buyers.

Coins produced by The Royal Mint are a staple of any UK bullion investors portfolio for a number of different reasons: As well as being competitively priced, Royal Mint coins with face value are UK legal tender and hence Capital Gains Tax free. By purchasing UK coins eligible for CGT exemption you can avoid paying tax over the profit you make, the amount of this CGT free profit won't affect or decrease the limit of tax free profit on your other investments either.

The price of lunar coins will closely track the gold price due to their pure gold content, these coins are limited mintage, highly recognisable and highly liquid, there will always be someone waiting to buy them from you when you are ready to sell.

The first two coins in this series have now reached their maximum mintage and are now sold out at the mint and most dealers. We would advise anyone wishing to collect the Lunar set to consider purchasing the first coins in the series as soon as possible before they sell out completely.

The Lunar coins are supplied to us in sealed Royal Mint tubes, if you are buying one or just a couple then your pieces will be sent in hard plastic coin capsules. If you buy multiple coins then you may receive a Royal Mint Tube, we do not supply any Royal Mint Blister Packaging unless stated otherwise.

About the Lunar Dog:

The Dog is the fifth in The Royal Mint’s series of lunar coins brought to life by artist Wuon-Gean Ho, following her designs for the Year of the Horse, Sheep, Monkey and Rooster. The design depicts a terrier, a much-loved breed of dog that has been portrayed by artists for centuries.

About the Royal Mint's Shengxiào (Lunar) Series

The Royal Mint is a national treasure, making beautifully crafted coins and medals for countries all over the world. Over a thousand years of craftsmanship and artistry ensures every piece they strike is a long-lasting piece of history. 

The Royal Mint’s Lunar Shēngxiào coin collection was launched in 2014 and celebrates wonderful Chinese traditions in a unique fusion of Chinese and British heritage. Each coin features contemporary designs of the animals of the Chinese Zodiac.

The lunar calendar plays a significant role in Chinese culture, helping people choose auspicious days for notable events in their lives, such as a wedding day. It also sets out auspicious dates, including Chinese New Year. During these celebrations gifts in red envelopes are often given to family, friends and colleagues symbolising love, luck and good fortune. The coins of The Shēngxiào Collection are a continuation of this ancient gift-giving tradition.
