A strong, energetic and dynamic horse represents the Chinese Lunar Zodiac Year of the Horse ably.This large, impressive coin represents a tremendous investment opportunity, struck in pure silver! These new Lunar Zodiac Series II coins are huge - at 55.60 mm in diameter, they are more than 2 inches across! This beauty is made all the more desirable by the Mint's execution of this intriguing animal motif in pure silver, artistically rendered in striking, vibrant hues! The full color design is highlighted on dark, fully mirrored fields (or background), further enhancing an already handsome design (which is even nicer looking than the mint-supplied images suggest). Between the large size, the incredibly low mintage (only 1,000 in the mint's special ANDA Show presentation packaging) & the beauty of the design, color and finish, we think you'll be impressed with this affordable, pure silver horse!

The Year of the Horse - Intrepid and Energetic!
Centuries ago, the Chinese invented a calendar based on the lunar (rather than the solar) cycle. There are twelve animals in the Chinese lunar zodiac, each corresponding in sequence to a year rather than a month.

A strong, energetic and dynamic horse represents the Chinese Lunar Zodiac Year of the Horse ably. In 2014 we celebrate the Year of the Horse. According to tradition, people born during a Year of the Horse (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, and 2014) are said to exhibit that animal’s attributes. Horse people are active and energetic. They have plenty of charisma and know appeal to others (especially others of the opposite sex). Horses are joiners who love to be part of the group, meaning that is why they can usually be seen at such occasions like concerts, theaters, meetings, sporting events, and of course, parties.

People born during the Year of the Horse have a pleasant, amiable, easy going disposition which guarantees popularity and a large following of friends. Blessed with good humor and geniality, they are extremely easy to get along with, for they have the knack of instantly putting people at their ease.

The Horse is very quick-witted and insightful. S/he is right in there with you before you have even had the chance to finish what you are saying: s/he's on the thought in your mind even before you've expressed it! The Horse can be hot-blooded, hot-headed and impatient. The Horse is a worker, adepts at handling money and a good financier. But unfortunately, s/he is also famous for suddenly losing interest in a project.

Those born a Horse have many contradictions in character. Horses are proud yet sweet-natured, arrogant yet oddly modest in their approach to love, envious but tolerant, conceited yet humble. They want to belong, yet they are burdened by their need for independence. They need love and crave intimacy yet often feel cornered or pressured. But the truth is, the Horse is an individual, who depends only on its wits and his labor to get what it wants!
