ABOUT THE COIN
The Horse is the seventh animal in the twelve year Zodiac cycle. Exciting and extroverted, vivid and animated, those born during the Year of the Horse are the life of any party they attend. They are bursting with energy, always looking for the next place to kick up their heels and hang loose. New Zealand Mint is happy to release three beautiful Lunar coins to celebrate the Year of the Horse 2014.
This coin face classically portrays an ethereal image of a white horse illustrating its energy, power, intelligence and beauty. This striking colour image is encircled by a traditional engraved border design, the Chinese character for Horse, and the engraved words 2014 Year of the Horse.
This features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The 2014 Year of the Horse 1/2 oz Silver Coin is packaged in an attractive Perspex display case, which sits inside a red leather imitation box. The inner packaging is covered by a pure white sleeve, which matches the colour of the horse on the coin. When opened, the coin and Certificate of Authenticity are displayed.
