Gold Coast Bullion presents the 1oz Lunar Horse Silver Coin (2014) from the Australian Lunar Series II by the Perth Mint. 

This is the 7th coin in a set of 12.  The Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II from the Perth Mint began with the Year of the Mouse (2008), with one coin being released each year.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle.

Traditionally, the first year of the lunar cycle is ‘ruled’ by the mouse. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’.  The horse is the seventh sign of the Chinese zodiac.  The horse is a symbol of happiness and liberty and those born under the influence of the sign are said to be fiercely independent, hardworking, energetic, optimistic and animated.  Always the life of the party, people born in the Year of the Horse are popular with a passion for entertainment and large crowds. Quick-witted and clever, the horse is a master of repartee, amusing and delighting his audience wherever he goes.

Struck from 999 pure silver, these Australian legal tender coins would make an ideal gift for parents who had a child born during the period 31 January 2014 to 18 February 2015.
