Why purchase this impressively graded 2014-P 2 oz. Silver Australian Lunar Series II Year of the Horse proof coin?
The Australian Lunar Series II was issued from 2008 until 2019. Each release of the series was dedicated to one of the twelve animal symbols that comprise the ancient Chinese zodiac. The 2014 releases were issued in celebration of the Year of the Horse. The horse is a representation of strength, diligence and independence.
A Beautiful Woodland Scene

The inscriptions "ELIZABETH II" and "AUSTRALIA" curve above, with "2 OZ 999 SILVER," "2014" and "2 DOLLARS" sweeping below. In recognition of the artist, the design also includes the initials "IRB."
Reverse: A pair of horses is depicted amid rocky terrain on the reverse, as one leans forward to take a drink from a stylized stream. Inscriptions include the Chinese character for horse, "YEAR OF THE HORSE" and the Perth Mint mark "P."
