2018 Silver 1 Oz Chad LUNAR YEAR OF DOG OMINOUS SHERLOCK Holmes Hound Of Baskervilles coin.
A brand new approach to Lunar coins.
The Ominous Lunar Calendar series provides a new take on the familiar theme of Lunar coins.
Called “Ominous Lunar Calendar”, the new series will feature a one-ounce coin made of .999 fine silver for each lunar year. Each piece will be struck in ultra-high relief with a depth of four millimeters and an antique finish.
This series debuts with a 2018 Year of the Dog coin that is inspired by the Hound of Baskervilles, a supernatural and diabolical beast from the novel of the same name by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, his third book that features the legend of Sherlock Holmes. The coin has two traditional Asian buildings plus clouds and a moon with craters will be in the background.
In a twist, this Lunar series will depict fictional animal characters in active poses focusing on motions and life actions on the reverse side of each coin.
At the top of the common obverse will be a moon, while in the center will appear the coat of arms of the Republic of Chad that holds by two paws.
And under the coat of arms will be the logo of the Mint of Poland. Surrounding this design will be inscriptions for the purity, weight, name of the series, and face value.
Each coin will have its serial number on the edge with a matching number and certificate of authenticity laser engraved on the bottom of a light-weight aluminum screw-top box.
