Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
No single animal has contributed more to the development and spread of civilization than the horse. It fuelled farms; powered armies and was the privilege of emperors and kings. For centuries, the horse was a significant status symbol, often portrayed in statues and carvings buried with important figures in history.

Legends abound. From east to west, the horse embodies the same compelling character, making it a natural symbol for this coin that celebrates the tradition and history of Chinese communities; the strength that is an integral part of Canadian culture and nationhood.

Highlights:
This compelling sterling silver coin features a shimmering hologram as a vibrant centrepiece to bring a Canadian element to its dynamic, Asian-inspired design.

Coin design:
Five horses parade around a colourful hologram featuring a sprig of two maple leaves. With a decorative pattern in the background, the overall design of this coin echoes the ornate art typical of Chinese pottery, embroidery and sculpture.
