Struck from 10oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, the coin is surmounted by a dazzling three-dimensional representation of a rearing horse made from 18-carat rose gold. The horse is pavé-set with 169 specially selected Fancy Intense, Vivid Pink and Purplish Pink Argyle diamonds weighing approximately 2.76 carats. Two golden coloured diamonds from the Argyle Diamond Mine represent the horse’s eyes.

Featured in many mythological stories and one of 12 auspicious animals in the ancient lunar calendar, the horse has played a potent role in Chinese culture for millennia. Often credited with the invention of the harness and stirrups, China first domesticated the horse many thousands of years ago. Pulling chariots and carrying combat riders into battle, it played an important military role in helping to protect the Middle Kingdom from barbarian raids. Symbolising vitality, speed, courage, nobility and power, the horse has frequently been celebrated in art, noticeably the black ink wash painting style dating from the Tang dynasty. The horse represents one of the most recurrent animal themes in Chinese culture to this day.
