Reflecting the endearing nature of the Dog, people born in the Year of the Dog are loyal and sincere individuals well-liked by the people around them. They are independent and have a strong sense of responsibility. The dog occupies the 11th position in the Chinese zodiac cycle and is considered auspicious – if a dog happens to come to one’s house, it symbolizes the arrival of fortune.

The obverse side of the coin features a jovial dog accompanied by flourishing chrysanthemums. Known as one of the “Four Gentlemen among Plants”, chrysanthemums are commonly depicted in Chinese paintings for their beauty and virtues they represent. Chrysanthemums symbolize resilience and possess the capacity to withstand adversities as they brave the cold autumn frost to bloom in graceful shapes and vibrant colours.

The reverse side features the ‘Leal Senado’ Building. It is located within the Historic Centre of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built in 1784, it has a neo-classical design and has retained all its original walls and main layout, including the courtyard garden. The ‘Leal Senado’ Building was Macau’s first municipal chamber, a function it maintains till today.
