Brisbane Bullion presents the 100g Lunar 2014 – Year of the Horse minted silver bullion investment bar by PAMP. Whether as a gift, to celebrate a birthday or as an investment, this 100g silver bar is sure to impress.
Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle.
Traditionally, the first year of the lunar cycle is ‘ruled’ by the mouse. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.
In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. The horse is the seventh sign of the Chinese zodiac. The horse is a symbol of happiness and liberty and those born under the influence of the sign are said to be fiercely independent, hardworking, energetic, optimistic and animated. Always the life of the party, people born in the Year of the Horse are popular with a passion for entertainment and large crowds. Quick-witted and clever, the horse is a master of repartee, amusing and delighting his audience wherever he goes.
This 100g silver minted bar would make a special gift for anyone born with the Chinese Lunar Zodiac sign of the Horse, or for parents who welcomed a child born between 31 January 2014 to 18 February 2015.
