The Perth Mint of Australia has gained worldwide renown as one of the finest producers of gold bullion coins. The Lunar Series II, which was created as a complement to the coins’ successful inaugural series, began in 2008 and will continue through to 2019. Each new edition is designed to celebrate the year of the Chinese Lunar Calendar in which the coin is produced. 2014’s edition celebrates the Year of the Horse.
At Silver.com, the 1/10th oz. Australian Gold Horse is ready and available to ship in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Comprised of 99.99% (.9999) pure gold, this coin is among the purest available for purchase today. The design of the coin’s reverse depicts a regal horse galloping through grassy meadows in the shadows of some imposing Australian mountains. The image itself is so intricate that even the horse’s individual muscles are discernible with the naked eye. Above the horse’s image is the Chinese character for ‘Horse’ while the grass upon which it is galloping has an inscription which reads ‘Year of the Horse.’
On the reverse of the coin is where you will find Ian Rank-Broadley’s rendering of Queen Elizabeth II. Lining the reverse side’s outer edges are inscriptions which read ‘Elizabeth II” and ‘Australia.” Also lining the edges of the coin are the face value, purity, and weight indications.
The Chinese Lunar Horse rules all those who are born in 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, and 2014. If you were born during this Lunar Calendar year you are said to be hot-blooded, impatient, hardworking, sociable, and energetic.
Beginning in 2008, or the Year of the Mouse, the Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II will emit new releases up until 2019. Being one of the most sought after coin series in the world, each new addition to the Perth Mint Gold Lunar Series is among the most highly anticipated coin releases year in and year out.
