Revered for being active, energetic and quick-witted creatures, the horse is the seventh animal in the Chinese Lunar Zodiac. That’s why the animal has been memorialized on the Australian 2014 Year of the Horse oz Gold Proof coin.
Hailing all the way from the Perth Mint of Australia, each coin is composed of troy ounce of .9999 fine gold, struck in a beautiful proof finish.
The reverse of each oz Gold Perth Horse features a stallion running through a field with mountains to its left. The coin is inscribed with the Chinese character for “horse,” along with the words “Year of the Horse” and the mint mark “P.”
The obverse of each 2014 Year of the Horse features Ian Rank-Broadley’s Queen Elizabeth II design, along with the coin’s year of issue, weight, fineness and its denomination. Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Perth Mint.
The Lunar horse — which is part of the Chinese zodiac’s 12-year cycle — includes the years 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014. People born in these years are believed to be energetic, hard-working, cheerful and intelligent.
About the Perth Mint
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 after gold was discovered in local Australian deposits. The newly-established mint struck gold and silver sovereigns until Great Britain abandoned the gold standard in 1931.
The mint remained under British ownership until July 1970, when it ceded to the state government of Western Australia. Today, the Perth Mint produces nearly all of the nation’s legal tender bullion coins in its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
