Coin Story

Recognised as an FEI discipline in 1983, Vaulting is practiced by both men and women, competing together on teams or separately as individuals. It is a competitive discipline where both dynamic and static gymnastic elements are combined and performed on a cantering horse. It requires both outstanding physical condition from the vaulter and a harmonious relationship with the horse if the ideal display of strength, coordination, rhythm, suppleness and balance is to be achieved. Vaulting exercises include artistic mounts and dismounts, shoulder stands and handstands on the horse, carrying or lifting another vaulter, kneeling and standing exercises. The horse is guided on a long rein by a longeur standing on the ground, who ensures that steady canter is maintained on a circle with a minimum diameter of 15 m. Judging is based on technique, form, difficulty, balance, security and consideration of the horse.

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 his horse in a vaulting 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 Vaulting coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
