The silver coin of the classical round shape bears the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II on its obverse. The portrait is surrounded by the following traditional inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the Latin title meaning By the Grace of God, Queen, the face value of the coin and its issuing year.
A stylized prancing horse over a mirror background is depicted on the ornamented reverse of the Canadian Lunar coin. Capturing the natural grace and beauty inherent in this gorgeous animal, the coin is another magnificent tribute to the Year of the Horse in Chinese astrology. The Chinese believe that because horses are born to race or travel, all Horse people invariably leave home young. Possessing boundless energy and ambition, a Horse's inner self always remains powerfully rebellious. The reverse also includes the inscription of the issuing country name and the Chinese symbol standing for horse. The Year of the Horse coin is presented within an attractive Asian-inspired case making it a beautiful gift for someone born in 2014 or any other Horse year!
