The Royal Mint has launched a series of Lunar coins that lend a unique British angle to an ancient tradition. The 2014 Lunar Year of Horse coin is the perfect way to continue the Lunar New Year gifting tradition that brings good fortune to the recipient. The 1 oz Silver Lunar Year of the Horse coins, in Brilliant Uncirulated condition, are a first for The Royal Mint – the first legal tender Lunar coins struck for the United Kingdom – and they begin a wonderful new series: the Shengxiào Collection, named in honour of the Chinese zodiac.
The coins feature a dynamic galloping horse design, along with the year of issue, weight and purity. The stunning design was produced by British Chinese artist and printmaker, Wuon-Gean Ho.
