2018 is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese lunar calendar, the 12-year cycle that associates each year with one of 12 animals. It follows the Year of the Rooster in 2017 and will be followed by the Year of the Pig (or Boar) in 2019. Unlike the Western New Year that starts on January 1, the Chinese New Year starts on a different date each year – and the Year of the Dog starts on February 16, 2018.
As a result, this is the perfect time to start – or add to – your collection of “lucky” Year of the Dog coins and other special items. These spectacular collectibles also make great gifts for anyone born in the Year of the Dog (1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018) … or anyone who loves dogs!
