2014 Perth Mint (P) Australia Silver Year of the Horse 1 Ounce (oz) MS70 Early Release (ER) NGC Horse Label
These magnificent silver coins celebrate the Year of the Horse, the seventh animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. The Year of the Horse applies to those born in 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014.
Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be hardworking, sociable, optimistic and energetic.
The Perth Mint will produce up to 300,000 1oz coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first. Due to the low mintage of the 1oz size it is highly collectable and is sure to sell out fast.
Meticulously struck from 99.9% pure silver in bullion quality, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The reverse depicts two horses standing within a stylized 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’ mint mark.
The obverse of the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2014 year-date and the monetary denomination.
