At the heart of this limited edition commemorative cover sits the Lunar Year of the Horse UK 2014 1oz Silver Coin which is struck by The Royal Mint. An impressive full ounce of fine Silver, this coin is the very first United Kingdom legal tender Lunar coin - and the first of a new series of lunar calendar coins which honour the Chinese Zodiac and its ancient traditions.
To mark 2014 being the Year of the Horse, Chinese-English artist Wuon-Gean Ho has created a striking design featuring a galloping horse in the foreground, and the famous white Uffington Horse of the Oxfordshire hills in the background.
To further reflect the Chinese New Year celebrations, Royal Mail’s 1st Class ‘Firework’ stamp sits alongside a special customised label featuring a Chinese paper-cut illustration of a horse. This design is also echoed by the all-important one-day-only postmark which perfectly ties the stamps to this unique coin cover and is cancelled with the date of Chinese New Year 2014 – 31st January.
Just 495 Collectors can own The 2014 Year of the Horse Silver Coin Cover
As I’m sure you’re aware, over the last few years Silver Coin Covers like this one, have experienced a surge in demand – often selling out within a matter of weeks. Even subjects with far less collector interest, like the 150th Anniversary of London Underground, have seen editions of 500 disappear in weeks.
Don’t forget, the stunning 2014 Year of the Horse Silver Coin Cover has an edition limit of just 495 and comes housed in its own Luxury Presentation Folder, alongside a Certificate of Authenticity.
Ensure you don’t miss out owning the very first legal tender Lunar Year of the Horse UK 2014 1oz Silver Coin in its most limited form.
