The Central Bank of Ireland has issued its latest collector coin, a €15 silver proof coin featuring the design of a wolfhound, at the National University of Ireland in Galway.

The coin is the final in a series of three which pays tribute to the original 1928 coins designed by Percy Metcalfe.

The Irish hunter horse and the salmon featured on the other two coins.

There are 8,000 collector coins available and will cost €46 per coin.

The coin, designed by Emmet Mullins, can be purchased from the Central Bank's website.
