Coin Story

In modern Dressage competitions, horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements, known as ‘figures’ (volte, serpentine, figure of eight). They perform these movements in a completely flat, rectangular arena, measuring 60 x 20 m. The arena is skirted by a low rail along which 12 lettered markers are placed symmetrically indicating where movements are to start and finish and where changes of pace or lead are to occur. Upon entering the arena, each rider proceeds down a marked centre line and halts to salute. The horse must stand four-square and immobile. In all competitions, the horse has to show the paces: walk, trot and canter as well as smooth transitions within and between these paces.

The Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), founded in 1921, is the international body governing equestrian sport recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and it’s the sole controlling authority for all international events in Jumping, Dressage & Para-Equestrian Dressage, Eventing, Driving & Para-Equestrian Driving, Endurance, Vaulting and Reining. It is a great and diverse range of disciplines whom despite their many differences, are bound by their one common athlete – the horse. The FEI promotes equestrianism in all its forms and encourages the development of the FEI equestrian disciplines throughout the world, keeping the welfare of the horse at the heart of all activities.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts an equestrian on her horse in a dressage competition. The character offsets itself against the silver proof background, due to the applied color. The rest of the image is finely engraved into the coin.

Obverse Design

Each coin features the Principality of Andorra coat of arms. The name of the issuing nation ‘PRINCIPAT D'ANDORRA’ appears along the top edge and the face value of ‘5 Diner’ is indicated in the exergue.

Packaging

The FEI Dressage coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
