The Lunar Calendar series’ coin dedicated to the Year of the Horse is perhaps the most beautiful one among the whole set. The 1 dollar silver coin was minted in Perth in 2002 – the year reigned by the Horse according to the Chinese Lunar calendar. The item attracts one’s attention thanks to the spectacular figure of a galloping horse, covered with gold alloy. The Horse’s effigy is carefully crafted and mirror finished. There are five bats placed along the rim in the form of the ornament. Being an extremely favorable symbol in traditional Chinese culture, five bats represent the five kinds of happiness such as peace, wealth, health, long life and easy death. The obverse of the item is occupied by the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and her name placed in semicircle along the rim. There is also shown the country that issued the coin and its denomination.
