Coming from just north of the border, Provident Metals carries the Oz Year of the Horse, composed of .999 fine silver. The 2014 edition is in stark contrast to more playful Lunar coins from years past.
Indeed, the reverse of each coin features a fierce war horse, along with the Chinese character for “horse,” which is engraved on the animal’s neck. The horse has a closely cropped military-style mane, its nostrils flaring and its lips pulled back in anger while staring down its opponent. Designed by Canadian artist Simon Ng, the horse’s head is placed in front of a stylized field of wheat.
The obverse of each Oz Silver Year of the Horse features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II wearing pearls. It is engraved with the words ELIZABETH II and D G REGINA near the rim.
Vital to battles for centuries, horses are symbolically significant, like in the siege of Troy featured in the Iliad and Alexander the Great’s conquest of Europe. In fact, Alexander’s horse, Bucephalus, is one of the most famous horses of ancient times. A small city in Pakistan bears its name to this day.
Children born in the Year of the Horse are thought to share many of the animal’s most coveted attributes, including intelligence, stellar communication skills and kindness. Some of the horse’s less savory traits include narcissism and a hot-blooded nature.
