2014 United Kingdom Silver Year of the Horse 1 Ounce (oz) Proof (PF) in Original Government Packaging (OGP)

Known to many os the Chinese zodiac, the Shengxiao is centuries old, its origins mysterious with many stores surrounding its beginnings. The Shengxiao relates each year to one of 12 animals, attributing the characteristics associated with that animal to people born in a given year. The same animal signs are also assigned by month, sometimes call inner animals, by birth day known as true animals and birth hour - secret animals. Each is thought to influence an aspect of character or outlook.

The Lunar Year of the Horse
Those born in the year of the horse are said to be outgoing and cheerful, enjoying being part of a crowd but only when taking center stage and delighting their audience. The horse is generally healthy and agile, in part due to their positive outlook on life. Horses tend to be leaders in the workplace and their charming nature, good humor and geniality make them much admired and amiable partners. While quick-witted the horse can be changeable, anxious and stubborn and sometimes a touch rebellious.

The Design
In Wuon-Gean Ho's design she has combined the characteristics often associated with the horse of the Shengxiao - active and strong - with British folklore. Beneath her dynamic horse lies the famous Uffington Horse, an ancient white horse carved into the chalk hills of England in the Bronze Age, similar to horses seen on Iron Age coinage.
