Coin Story

The 2014 Year of the Horse coin issued by Rwanda is dedicated to seventh of all the animals in the Chinese zodiac. Highlighting the powerful galloping horse motif, the coin has been struck in .999 silver with two-layer agate. The worldwide mintage of this unique collectible is strictly limited to a mere 888 pieces. The Chinese believe that because horses are born to race or travel, all Horse people invariably leave home young. Possessing boundless energy and ambition, a Horse's inner self always remains powerfully rebellious.

Reverse Design

The coin is certain to catch the eye of collectors as it holds a unique two-colored stone which is carved in high relief from a single piece of two layer agate. It carries a realistic depiction of three galloping horses against the background of a natural landscape – a picture that is filled with grace and beauty inherent in these magnificent animals. The name of the coin and the list of Horse years are also indicated on the reverse.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the horse coin bears the coat of arms of Rwanda which symbolizes the unity of its people. The inscriptions along the rim of the coin include the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.

Packaging

The Year of the Horse coin by Rwanda is presented within a superbly crafted box that makes it an awesome lucky gift for any occasion. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
