.50There are many interesting coins that you can find that have been released by the Australian mints. This particular coin is well-known for its affordability and for featuring a horse for the “Year of the Horse”, 2014. These coins only contain .50 ounces of pure silver in them, making them a great investment tool for people who want to invest small amounts or who want to start a small collection for a young member of their family. Collectors may want to get their hands on these coins as well simply because they are one of the first coins from Australia that celebrates a neighboring culture.
The décor on these coins is rather unique, with two horses grazing on the obverse side of the coin, shown in incredible detail. The words “Year of the Horse” are also on this side of the coin along with the Chinese character denoting the year. The reverse side of this coin, like many, features Queen Elizabeth II, the year it was minted, the place it was minted, and the money denomination, 50 cents.
