In 2014, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Series II celebrates the Year of the Horse, the seventh animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. According to tradition, typical traits of those people born under the influence of the horse include independence, confidence and intelligence.  Lunar horse years include 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014. 


PROOF QUALITY 99.9% PURE SILVER - Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.


STUNNING HORSE DESIGN - The reverse of each coin depicts two horses standing within a stylized Chinese landscape.  The Chinese character for ‘horse’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Horse’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. 


AUSTRALIAN LEGAL TENDER - Issued as Australian legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, each coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year-date, the monetary denomination and the weight and fineness of each coin.


ELEGANT PACKAGING AND NUMBERED CERTIFICATES - Each coin is housed in a classic red and black presentation case and illustrated lunar-themed shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.


EXTREMELY LIMITED MINTAGE - An issue limit of 8,000 individual ½ oz. coins is being observed.


GREAT GIFT IDEA - As well as appealing to silver proof coin collectors, these outstanding releases make great gifts for people born in any year ruled by the Chinese lunar horse.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR OUR TEXAS CUSTOMERS: No sales tax on gold, silver, platinum, and numismatic coins, effective October 1, 2013.

PHOTOGRAPHS - Most coins are photographed with up to three different backdrops: black, matte aluminum, and white. (The "backdrop" is behind the camera, not behind the coin.) Many coins are highly reflective, picking up the color of the backdrop. Large areas that appear black on proof coins are usually the mirror bright silver surfaces reflecting a black backdrop. When a listing offers multiples of the same coin for sale, typically only one coin is photographed. Since all of the coins offered in the listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all of the coins offered.


What is a Troy Ounce?
When someone speaks of something weighing an ounce, the chances are that they are referring to an Avoirdupois Ounce, which is the seldom-used "official" name for the ordinary ounce. Bathroom scales, kitchen scales, produce scales, and other "ordinary" scales calibrated in ounces use the ordinary "Avoirdupois" ounces.

However gold, silver, platinum, and gunpowder are measured using a different system of weight - the Troy Ounce. The two ounces, Avoirdupois and Troy, are not the same. Knowing the difference can be very important: If you are buying or selling precious metals, including gold, silver, and platinum coins, you need to be sure which type of ounce you are getting - because a Troy Ounce is more than 9.7% heavier than an Avoirdupois Ounce!

An "ordinary" (Avoirdupois) Ounce is exactly 28.349523125 grams - or 437.5 grains.
A Troy Ounce is exactly 31.1034768 grams - or 480 grains.

The "price per ounce" of gold, silver, and platinum quoted in the precious metals and commodities markets are always for Troy Ounces. Troy Ounces are the measurement used worldwide for precious metals. This includes bullion weights; the commodity market's price-per-ounce of gold, silver, platinum (also the other rare "Platinum Group Metals" rhodium, ruthenium, osmium, palladium and iridium); the precious metal "spot price"; and graphs that track the price changes of precious metals over time. Whether buying or selling precious metals, be sure that every part of the transaction uses the same ounce – the Troy ounce.
