The British Royal Mint is offering its newest coin in 2014; the 1 oz British Silver Year of the Horse. The coin is part of the new Shengxia Collection. It is the first in the celebration of the Chinese Zodiac’s calendar, which in this case is the sign of the horse. The coin is brand new, and in uncirculated condition.
Each 2014 1 oz Year of the Horse British Silver coin contains the Zodiac Calendar words “Year of the Horse.” The details on the coin are very specific as can be seen in the tail and mane of the horse which appear to be flowing in the wind, as the animal is gracefully galloping along. On the opposite side of the coin is the Royal Lady; Queen Elizabeth II, who is wearing her regal tiara. The silver horse design is the work of Chinese artist Wuon-Gean Ho.
Every coin displays the Queen’s title, the troy ounce weight of the coin, its purity (.999) and its legal tender value. This British coin will complete any Zodiac coin series collection and can make the perfect gift to offer a silver investor or collector. Each coin ordered through Silver.com is shipped in BU condition, just as it appears when it arrives at our facility from the mint. Extra packaging is enforced to ensure that each coin is not accidentally damaged, or scratched during transit.
