Year of the Horse MacauFebruary 9, 2014
Finally we’ve got the Year of the Horse Macau 1oz silver proof coin in store. A hot item in the Chinese market. This series of coins not only illustrates the lunar zodiac but also features the lankmarks in Macau. This year we have the Guia Fortress (東望洋炮台) on the obverse side.
In conjunction with the 2014 Lunar Horse year, the Monetary Authority of Macau issues the Macau Horse coin which is the seventh in the Macau Lunar coin collection (2008- 2019), exclusively minted and marketed by The Singapore Mint.
The magnificent horse is illustrated in an awe-inspiring pose on the obverse side of the coin: rearing on its hind legs, seemingly at the brink of take-off. This burst of vigor and forward-looking spirit hints at the beginning of many good things to come, in your career or life.
The horse is accompanied by a cascade of alluring camellia flowers in full bloom. They come in many vibrant colours and just like the horse’s unyielding resilience, these flowers flourish even in cold weathers; upholding brilliance no matter the circumstance.
The coin’s reverse side embodies the carvings of the Guia Fortress – in commemoration of Macau’s maritime, military and missionary past. The fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also a popular tourist attraction of Macau.
