- The Chinese calendar series : every year a new animal is presented
- 2018 : the year of the Dog
- An innovative striking method with high relief, the engraging reaches up to 10 times its regular height
The series features each year the Chinese calendar animals. Chinese astrology is based on a 12 years cycle, represented by twelve animals. The 2018 year is the year of the dog.
On the obverse of this 20€ silver coin, surrounded by a pattern inspired by Chinese traditional arts, the dog flies out from the middle of the coin. The wording « Year of the Dog » surrounds the design. An ideogram realized by a Chinese Calligraphy Master is also displayed.
On the reverse we can find the twelve animals that constitute the Chinese zodiac displayed on a traditional screen alongside a Chinese temple door. The one the dog used to go “through” the coin!
