Celebrating Chinese and British heritage with a dynamic design

The UK’s first Lunar coins

In 2014 The Royal Mint launches a new series with the Lunar Year of the Horse 2014 UK Tenth-Ounce Gold Brilliant Uncirculated coin. The Shēngxiào Collection, inspired by centuries of tradition, begins with the first coin in the series created by artist Wuon-Gean Ho for the Lunar Year of the Horse. It features a dynamic horse design that unites Chinese and British heritage, captured in fine gold to a superior Brilliant Uncirculated finish with limited edition presentations to satisfy international demand.

The Royal Mint’s Lunar coins lend a unique British angle to an ancient tradition. They are perfect to wish good fortune and a prosperous year to the recipient, to continue the gifting tradition seen at Lunar New Year or to begin a beautiful new collection. They are a first for The Royal Mint, the first legal tender Lunar coins struck for the United Kingdom and they begin an auspicious series: The Shēngxiào Collection, named to honour the Chinese zodiac.

Beginning the Shēngxiào Collection are coins struck for the Lunar Year of the Horse. British Chinese artist and printmaker Wuon-Gean Ho has created a dynamic design combining a powerful and impressive horse with the famous Uffington Horse, an ancient white horse carved into the chalk hills of Oxfordshire, at its feet. Struck in 999.9 fine gold with a superior Brilliant Uncirculated finish the resulting combination is a stunning display of both British and Chinese heritage. With only 2,888 (with the lucky number eight!) Lunar Year of the Horse 2014 UK Tenth-Ounce Gold Brilliant Uncirculated coins available, an early order is recommended.

Very pleased with the fast delivery. The box it's displayed in on the website gives the impression that the coin is bigger than it is. It may be small but it is beautiful and I love it.

Happy horse year !
