The Perth Mint of Australia has produced a wide array of attractive gold and silver coins throughout its 100+ year history. Since 1996, the Gold Lunar series coins has been one of, if not, the most highly sought after collection of gold bullion coins in the world. Celebrating the Chinese Lunar Calendar and its associated themes, the Lunar Series II has some of the most attractive and intricate designs you will find on a gold coin. 2014’s addition to the Lunar Series II celebrates the Year of the Horse.
The 1/4 oz. 2014 Australian Gold Horse coin is available from Silver.com in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and is available and ready for shipping. Like most Perth Coins, the Australian Gold Horse has a superior level of purity as it is composed of .9999 (99.99%) pure gold. On the coin’s reverse you will find the beautifully detailed image of a horse galloping through a grassy field at the foot of Australian mountains. Fixated above the reverse’s central image is the Chinese character for ‘horse.’ Below the horse, hidden within the grass, is an inscription which reads ‘Year of the Horse.’ Finally, in the upper left side, you will see the iconic ‘P’ Perth mintmark.
Designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, the obverse side of the 2014 Australian Gold Horse pays homage to Queen Elizabeth II. Her highness’ image dominates the central part of the coin’s obverse while the 1/4 oz weight, .9999 purity, and $25 AUD indications adorn the outer edge. Also along the coin’s outer edge are inscriptions reading ‘Elizabeth II’ and ‘Australia.’
Those people who were born in 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, and 2014 are all said to be ruled by the Chinese Lunar Year of the Horse. People born in these years are said to possess energetic, optimistic, and hardworking traits. The 2014 Australian Gold Horse is the 7th release of the Lunar Series II, which is expected to release new coins each and every year until 2019, the Year of the Pig.
