    If you are familiar with the 2013 and 2014 Britannia's, the features are the same. I ordered 5 coins and they are not anywhere near the quality of the perfectly executed Perth Mint Lunar Series.

    At least it's the first of the series and who knows if it will go up in value. There's too many Mints producing lunar series coins these days.

    Half of the coins have milk spot

    Attracted by the beautiful design, I ordered 30 of this coin, but at least 15 of them have milk spot!

        I bought 20 of the new Great Britain Lunar Horses assuming it would be a mint roll, upon reciept the coins were flipped over and two had milk spots indicating this roll was searched for high grade coins, I guess they do this will all their coins.

                Most people that haven't looked at why this is designed this way. In the background is the famous Uffington-White Horse which is significant. The figure presumably dates to "the later prehistory", i.e. the Iron Age (800 BC–AD 100) or the late Bronze Age (1000–700 BC). This view was generally held by scholars even before the 1990s, based on the similarity of the horse's design to comparable figures in Celtic art, and it was confirmed following a 1990 excavation led by Simon Palmer and David Miles of the Oxford Archaeological Unit, following which deposits of fine silt removed from the horse's 'beak' were scientifically dated to the late Bronze Age. Minted in 999.9 Fine Silver, it's was a definite buy for me. This is a first Lunar calendar mintage for the Royal Mint.

                    I purchased this coin because it was a new 2014 issue from the Royal Mint and it celebrated the Year of the Horse. The design is very beautiful and would have been better if there was some luster contrast. Nevertheless, it makes a good addition to any collection.

                          Wow! From a Great country that has a deep equestrian history and an endless portfolio of great artists and art given to the world and a proud People you would think they could have come up with something a bit more interesting and impressive than this! Looks like the 5th grade drawing contest winner. Must be a good story behind that design!

                            Great chance to purchase an inaugural issue. Looking forward to this first issue to be a key coin to own. Hope the engraver/ designer can work on making a more appealing image with subsequent years. This horse artwork is unremarkable.
