2018 is the Chinese Year of the Dog. The dog is a symbol of prosperity, as the Chinese saying goes, “when a strange dog enters one’s house, it will bring one’s wealth”. It is believed that a dog can also boost one’s good fortune, since the barking of a dog, “wang-wang”, sounds like the Chinese character for “prosperity” (旺). To celebrate this thriving Year of the Dog, the famous Royal Mint has proudly issued the “Hong Kong Year of the Dog Gold Proof Medals” in limited worldwide edition! Sequels to the first yellow gold lunar medal series of the HKSAR, these medals will dazzle your eyes with the intrinsic nobleness and splendour of pure yellow gold!
