The 5 Gram Lunar Horse Gold Bar was minted at the celebrated PAMP Suisse Mint in honor of the 2014 Chinese Lunar Year of the Horse. It was the third bar to be released from the mint’s popular Lunar Calendar Series. As fitting a product from the prestigious Switzerland-based Mint, each bar has been minted in 5 grams of 99.99% pure gold. Such an exceptionally high gold purity makes this bar ideal for any investment, including IRA contributions. All bars are guaranteed to arrive in brand new condition, sealed in their original red PAMP Suisse decorative assay card for verification.

- Minted at the PAMP Suisse in Switzerland.
- Individual bars ship in sealed plastic with an Assay card, and multiples of 25 ship in boxes.
- Obverse design features a horse design for the Chinese Zodiac series.
Displayed on the front of the bar is 2014’s Lunar Year animal, the horse, which is galloping around the base of a tree. From its flowing mane to the dynamic positioning of its powerful legs, viewers are certain to appreciate the sense of movement, which artists have managed to achieve through their skillful engraving. Equally as impressive is the utilization of Eastern art aesthetics to create a distinctly Asian motif, such as the clean lines of the figures’ silhouettes and the traditional Chinese calligraphy that has been engraved unto the upper portion of the tree. (This symbol is known as the “ma” and is the Chinese word for “Horse.”)
As with other bars from the Lunar Series, the back of this bar helps to create a three dimensional image by featuring the reverse side of the front artwork. It depicts the same horse, peering from the other side of the tree with its tail playfully swishing around the corner. Also inscribed on this side of the bar are its vital information including its mint, weight, purity and a unique serial number. PAMP Suisse’s official seal of authenticity appears at the very bottom of the bar and is identified by the words “Essayeur Fonduer.”
Although the 5 gram PAMP Suisse Lunar Horse Gold Bar commemorates the Year of the Horse, its fine craftsmanship and stunning artistry makes it a timeless piece that is certain to be enjoyed by not only investors but collectors as well.
