On the reverse of each coin in this set is the image of a different horse for the Year of the Horse design. These coins have a colorized finish, with one coin depicted a golden-yellow horse, one with a black stallion, another with a mother and colt in brown, and finally a magnificent mustang galloping across the open fields.
The obverse of all 2014 Colorized Silver Australian Horse Rectangle 4-Coin Sets bears a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s portrait typically graces the obverse of all Perth Mint coinage, but this particular design is unique for the Cook Islands and features a design from Raphael Maklouf.
Australia’s Perth Mint is its oldest operating facility, outdating even its official sovereign mint. Originally part of the Royal Mint system under British control, today it is owned by the state government of Western Australia and exists separate of the Royal Australian Mint.
