February’s bulletin includes the first release from our new Gods of Olympus 2oz silver coin series. Befitting such a dramatic figure, the high relief design is struck in a rimless format and features an antique finish for a truly impressive result.

This bulletin also features the latest coin from a popular established series, as well as the initial release from a new series that looks equally strong.

The Tasmanian Devil is the fifth native animal to appear in our well-loved Australian Opal series, which previously depicted the koala, wombat, kangaroo and pygmy possum in similarly stunning style.

For the first coin in our heart-warming Mother’s Love series, however, we’ve chosen a lioness. The beautiful design reflects her affection for a young cub – with similar portrayals featuring four other world animals and their offspring to follow.

ANZAC day approaching and you’ll find a new commemorative Australian $1 coin which this year pays special tribute to the Royal Australian Navy Submarine Service.

As well as the latest design from The Land Down Under Series, there are carded additions to the Australian Koala silver coin series and two new releases celebrating the Year of the Horse.

For something completely different this Lunar New Year, the Chinese Astrological Series has the cutest gold coins celebrating the 2014 Year of the Horse. Each coin depicts a charming caricature of a horse and the Chinese character for either Fu, Lu or Shou – representatives of ‘prosperity’, ‘success’ and ‘longevity’ in ancient Chinese culture.

The Year of the Horse begins on 31 January 2014. The horse is a symbol of happiness and liberty and those born under its influence (1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014) are said to be fiercely independent, hardworking, energetic, optimistic and animated.

The 2014 Lunar Good Fortune set is laden with Chinese symbolism for those celebrating the Year of the Horse.

The Wisdom design depicts a horse with a traditional ink stone and brushes, said to signify patience and sagacity.

The Wealth coin portrays a rearing horse wearing a ceremonial saddle and a money tree heavy with gold coins representing increasing prosperity.

Both designs are encircled by a horse shoe, denoting luck.
