Just in at Gainesville Coins is a very limited number of the ultra-popular “Working Dogs” proof silver colorized coins from the Perth Mint. Each coin in this 2011 five-coin series was limited to a mintage of 3,000, and comes in a presentation box with certificate of authenticity.

The design for each breed features a realistically colorized image of an adult dog and puppy, with a silver proof background of the typical working environment for that breed. In addition to the “Working Dogs” logo in the upper left, the name of the breed and its “occupation” is inscribed along the bottom.

Legal tender of the island nation of Tuvalu, these coins are made of 999 fine silver and carry a denomination of $1.
