The first issue of the new Series Fiji Dogs. The coin was struck from one ounce of 99.9% silver and is issued in a mintage of only 12,000 pieces worldwide. The motive shows a Dog that seems to run towards the viewer, as well as a house and mountains in the background. The name of the series, “DOGS”, is also included in the design. The reverse features the national emblem of Fiji, as well as the weight, fineness and denomination of the coin.
Dogs are generally considered “man’s best friend.” The domestication of the wolf can be dated back more than 100,000 years, making the dog the oldest domestic animal of man. Today, there are about 800 known dog breeds – the Chihuahua is one of the smallest recognized dog breeds, whereas the Great Dane with a withers height of at least 80 cm and the Irish Wolfhound with up to 95 cm are among the largest dog breeds.
The obverse of the silver coin is occupied by Fiji’s national coat of arms, in use since 1908. A shield is placed in the center of the depiction above a banner with the motto of the South Seas state “Rerevaka na Kalou ka doka na Tui.” (Fear God and honor the Queen). In the shield head is a golden, crowned lion with a cocoa pod in its paws. Below, a St. George’s cross divides the shield into four fields. In the four fields there are representatives of the flora and fauna typical of the country: a sugar cane plant, a coconut palm, a dove of peace and a banana tree. The shield is flanked on either side by two warriors in the local loincloths, one armed with a spear and the other with a club. A traditional outrigger boat with a sail is adorned above the shield.
Reverse: The largest part of the depiction is taken up by a dog, which jumps towards the viewer with its snout happily open and its tail raised. Front paws are crossed in the air while he pushes off with powerful hind legs ready for the next leap. He presents his tongue to the viewer as if he is already panting from running so fast. Its long, well-groomed fur flaps in the wind. The background is a mountain backdrop, the slopes of which rise steeply to the right. On the right side, on a hill in front of the mountains, a house nestles against the mountainside. The obverse bears the title of the coin series, “DOGS”.
