History

Australian Lunar silver coin – Year of the Horse

The Chinese lunar calendar is today used by many for Taoist cosmology. It is believed that, depending on the year of the zodiac when a person is born, a special relationship exists between the person’s personality and the animal that constitutes part of the Chinese zodiac. The animals in the zodiac are supposed to be of symbolic nature, where each animal is a representation of a specific group of characteristics and traits that can be found in every human being. There are twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac, each of them being celebrated once every twelve years, with the year 2014 belonging to the horse.

The horse is a highly respected animal in Chinese culture and those born in the year of the horse are considered to be persons who enjoy travelling and who are impulsive and energetic with an edgy temperament that makes them easily become impatient. People born in the year of the horse are said to be intelligent and logical, and are also considered to be hard-working, independent and ambitious. This generally leads them to good health as their positive attitude to work influences their well-being. However, they have a tendency to take on a heavy workload which then tires them and saps their strength. Other people tend to like the companionship of people born in the year of the horse because of their humour and easy-going nature which will make most people feel at ease.

It can therefore be seen that the Australian Gold Lunar Year of the Horse coin is an ideal gift for whoever you love or respect, since giving a Silver Lunar coin means that you are showing affection by immortalising the person’s year of birth and particular virtues in pure and precious silver artwork.

Australian Lunar Year of the Horse coins – as rare as silver

The Perth Mint introduced the Lunar Year of the Horse silver coins for the first time in 2002 and subsequently issued the coins again in 2014. The next issue of the “Year of the Horse” will only become available in 2026, when the horse according to the Chinese lunar calendar, will once again ride into view. In 2002 the coin was offered in 1 kg, 10 oz, 2 oz, 1 oz, and ½ oz weights, while the 2014 issue added two new weights: 10 kg and 5 oz. Sales of the one-ounce coin in 2002 totalled 99,632 pieces, while the 2014 issue has been sold out, reaching the maximum mintage limit of 300,000 silver coins. If the mintage for all Year of the Horse silver coins is included, then the total figure rises to 694,936 silver pieces. This is an extremely low figure compared with the mintage of other well-known investment silver bullion coins. For example, the American Silver Eagle coin reaches the corresponding cumulative mintage figure of the Year of the Horse silver coin every 7 days. Australian Lunar Year of the Horse silver coins are well suited for collectors since they are naturally as rare as silver.

Obverse

The obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Australia’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Australia has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Above the Queen’s effigy is the text “ELIZABETH II” and “AUSTRALIA”. Inscribed below the effigy is the denomination, the year of mintage, weight and purity of the coin, and the designer’s initials “IRB” – Ian Rank-Broadley.

Reverse

The reverse displays three goats. Inscribed above them is the Chinese character for “Horse”. Below the goats is the text “Year of the Horse” and to the left is the letter “P” which stands for Perth Mint.

Packaging

Each coin is individually packaged in a hard plastic capsule at the Perth Mint.
