The coin’s reverse portrays an adult border collie and a puppy in colour. An intelligent, devoted and energetic breed, the border collie’s great temperament is matched by its agility, concentration and instinctive desire to work closely with humans. The border collie’s acute herding instincts make it one of the world’s most popular sheep dogs. The design includes silhouettes of sheep in the background. As well as a decorative pattern of paw prints, the coin’s reverse also includes the inscriptions WORKING DOGS and BORDER COLLIE – SHEEP DOG. The reverse of each coin includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The Ian-Rank Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the year-date appears on the obverse of each coin.
