      Comments about 2014 Great Britain 1 oz Gold Year of the Horse MS-69 PCGS FS:

      There are so many reasons why I added this particular gold piece to my holdings. This is the first gold lunar piece the UK has done. 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 Gold, it's was a definite buy for me.

          Sometimes you don't realize what kind of opportunity you have before you. This is a first UK Lunar series coin. This coin is minted to .9999 fineness. MS-69 First Strike or Early Release when gold is around the $1250 range, is not a bad buy.
