This is the first lunar coin in the Royal Mint's Shēngxiào Collection. Each year, they will release a different animal of the zodiac calendar each year.
The starting animal in the calendar is the Year of the Rat, so it does seem strange that the Royal Mint chose to start the series midway through the lunar cycle. The Royal Mint have seen an increased market in China, particularly during the 2012 Olympics, which saw their Chinese sales surpass that of the domestic UK's.
In March 2014, reports began to surface that The Royal Mint had made an error during production, and that 'mule' versions of the 2014 silver Britannias and 2014 silver Lunar Horses exist. The production error is not believed to have affected the 2014 gold Britannias and the 2014 gold Lunar Horses.
The obverse features the fourth definitive UK coin portrait of Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse engraving was designed by British Chinese artist Wuon-Gean Ho. Combining both British and Chinese heritage, it shows the Uffington horse which you may recognise as the chalk design that is carved into the Oxfordshire hills.
