The 2014 Year of the Horse coin issued by Tokelau is dedicated to seventh of all the animals in the Chinese zodiac. Highlighting the powerful prancing horse motif, the oval-shaped coin has been struck in .999 fine silver with the worldwide mintage symbolically limited to 2014 pieces.
The obverse of the coin bears a relief effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II and the national symbol of Tokelau depicting a traditional tackle box commonly used by local fishermen. The obverse inscriptions include the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin and its issuing country.
The centrepiece of the reverse is a splendid prancing horse surrounded by the following natural elements of Chinese tradition: fire, water, earth, wood and air. The name of the coin is indicated at the bottom of the reverse. 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 need freedom and usually leave home young. Possessing boundless energy and ambition, a Horse's inner self always remains powerfully rebellious. The Year of the Horse coin is presented within an attractive case making it a beautiful gift for someone born in 2014 or any other Horse year!
