The obverse depicts the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II (year of issue and 5-dollar face value are also shown).
As with all Canadian Silver Maple leaf coins, the 2014 Year of the Horse design includes the series' hallmark assurance: "Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur" on the leaf face and adds the Horse privy mark on the bottom left side of the leaf.
These superb proof quality releases are perfect for people born in "horse" years - 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014 - who are regarded as hardworking, sociable, optimistic and energetic.
This series moves fast and makes a memorable gift.
