This year’s Gilded Edition from the Australian Lunar Series II depicts the horse, the seventh of the twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar.
In Chinese culture, people born in the Year of the Horse - 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014 - are regarded as hardworking, sociable, optimistic and energetic.
A superb gift or collectable, the coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, no more than 47,500 coins will be issued in this packaging out of a maximum mintage of 50,000.
The coin’s reverse depicts two gilded horses standing within a stylised Chinese landscape. The Chinese character for ‘horse’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Horse’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2014 year-date and the monetary denomination are shown on the coin’s obverse.
The Year of the Horse Gilded Edition coin is housed in a presentation case and custom-designed shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
