The history of the Year of the Horse Silver coin
The Year of the Horse Silver coin celebrates the horse’s place in the Chinese ancient lunar calendar, as well as the horse’s connection to Chinese culture. The Lunar Silver coins, like the lunar calendar, record the finishing place of each zodiacal animal in a mythical race, where the horse was startled by the snake and finished seventh. The image on these collectible Silver Lunar coins shows the strength and beauty in horses, consistent with the history of an animal that is closely linked to China’s military might. In addition, the horses on these Silver bullion coins also honor the connection to the Chinese landscape because of their domestication there thousands of years ago.
