In Chinese tradition, the Jade Emperor invited the animals of the world to a meeting. On the way to this meeting, the animals raced to meet the emperor. Only 12 animals, those represented on the Zodiac, arrived at the meeting. As these creatures raced to the meeting, the results of their Great Race determined their position on the Zodiac. The horse arrived seventh, explaining its position as the seventh animal on the Lunar Calendar.
On the reverse face of the 100 Gram Silver PAMP Suisse Horse Bar is the image of a stallion standing in front of a tree. Above the horse, located on the trunk of the tree, is an engraving of the Chinese symbol for horse.
The obverse side of the bar displays the opposite of the image on the other face. Looking at the horse from the other side of the tree, you can only see its front and hindquarters. Engravings on the trunk of the tree include the PAMP Suisse corporate logo, weight, metal content, and purity of the bar. Along the bottom, the individual serial number and assayer’s mark are inscribed.
