The reverse designs of the gold coins depict a horse galloping in a stylised scene of mountains and clouds, which represents the highland regions of China. The horse symbolises freedom and reinforces the energetic characteristics of this spirited animal.The design featured on the reverse of the silver coins depicts two horses standing in a Chinese landscape inspired by traditional Chinese painting styles. The two animals standing together represent the creature’s social nature and companionship.

The Perth Mint has officially announced the sell-out of both the 1 oz Silver Lunar Horse bullion coins and the 1 oz Gold Lunar Horse bullion coins. The 1 troy oz size in both the gold and silver versions of the Perth Mint Lunar Series II coins are limited mintages – 30,000 for the gold, and 300,000 for the silver. If 300,00 sounds like a lot of coins, keep in mind that the U.S. Mint usually sells around 2 million American Silver Eagle coins a MONTH. The 2014 Horse sell-out keeps up the perfect record of sell-outs for the Series II Perth Mint Lunar coins.

As a primary U.S. distributor for the Perth Mint, Gainesville Coins was able to secure a large number of both the gold and silver Lunar Horses in various sizes. Get yours before they’re all gone!
