Celebrating the Lunar Year of the Horse, Provident Metals is excited to carry Australian Lunar Series II 2014 Year of the Horse 5 oz Silver Proof Coins.
Hailing all the way from Australia’s Perth Mint, each coin is composed of 5 troy ounces of .999 fine silver, struck in stunning proof quality.
The reverse of each 5 oz Silver Perth Horse was designed by Tom Vaughan, and features two horses standing near a pool of water, one leaning down to take a sip. The animals are placed within a traditional Chinese landscape. The reverse is also inscribed with the Chinese character for horse, along with the words “Year of the Horse” and the mintmark 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 of two dollars. The 5 oz coin measures 55.6mm in diameter, and it is 3.6mm thick.</p.
The 5 oz Year of the Horse represents the seventh animal in the Chinese Lunar Zodiac.
The Lunar horse — which is part of a 12-year cycle — includes the years 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014. People born in these years are said to be incredibly confident, fiercely independent and highly 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 of 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.
