2014 Australian Stock Horse 5oz Gold Proof Coin

The history of the Australian Stock Horse dates back to the arrival of Australia’s first horses with the First Fleet in 1788.

Originally a combination of several breeds including the Thoroughbred, Arab, and Timor and Welsh Mountain ponies, the Australian Stock Horse has evolved to become a distinctive breed in its own right.

Although they were initially used for stock work and exploration by the early settlers, more than 120,000 Australian Stock Horses went on to serve in the First World War. Their strength, stamina and courage earned them international recognition as the finest cavalry mounts in the world and established their place in Australian history and folklore.

The 2014 Australian Stock Horse coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 5oz of 99.99% pure gold and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. No more than 99 of these coins will be issued worldwide.

The coin’s reverse portrays an Australian Stock Horse in a paddock rearing up on its hind legs. The design includes the inscription THE AUSTRALIAN STOCK HORSE, the 2014 year-date, coins fineness and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

The coin is housed in a prestigious wooden display case, within an illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
