Year of the Dog

#1 Unread post by mhonzell » Fri Dec 22, 2017 11:26 am

This year's coin from Belarus for the Year of the Dog.
Coin was actually made in Kazakhstan since Belarus economy went through hyper-inflation.

The dog in the rocket symbolizes the early space program. The Russians made it to space first and they sent animals before they sent people. The dog was one of the few who returned alive.

Really glad to hear Big Fido made it back safely.

In relation to the others produced in the series this one looks comical but still has the attention to detail as previous years. Some of the other years you have shared have been absolutely stunning.

I agree.
So far I have least liked the monkeies and the dog. But, with the economy revamp, I wasn't sure they would continue. Hopefully back to stunning next year.
