2014 Macau Horse 1/4oz 999.9 Fine Gold Proof Coin
In conjunction with the 2014 Lunar Horse year, the Monetary Authority of Macau issues the Macau Horse coin which is the seventh in the Macau Lunar coin collection (2008- 2019), exclusively minted and marketed by The Singapore Mint. The magnificent horse is illustrated in an awe-inspiring pose on the obverse side of the coin: rearing on its hind legs, seemingly at the brink of take-off. This burst of vigor and forward-looking spirit hints at the beginning of many good things to come, in your career or life. The horse is accompanied by a cascade of alluring camellia flowers in full bloom. They come in many vibrant colours and just like the horses unyielding resilience, these flowers flourish even in cold weathers; upholding brilliance no matter the circumstance. The coins reverse side embodies the carvings of the Guia Fortress in commemoration of Macaus maritime, military and missionary past. The fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also a popular tourist attraction of Macau.
