Unprecedented Yellow Gold Lunar Masterpieces of the Thousand-year Royal Mint
The Royal Mint is the oldest coin maker of the world with a history of over 1,100 years. As the sole official minting authority of the United Kingdom, the Mint has been entrusted with numerous large-scale commemorative coin programs, including the London Olympics, the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II and the birth of little Prince George. Its professionalism has won the trust of many countries worldwide to be the minter of their coinage. Hong Kong Year of the Horse Gold Proof Medals are from the first-ever yellow gold lunar medal series of this celebrated Mint. Each of them is crafted with a combination of traditional hand-engraving skills and top-notch modern technology. The vigor of a galloping horse and the glamour of the Victoria Harbour are vividly captured in exquisite frosted relief against a shiny mirror-like background on the medals! Definitely breathtaking works of art, they will be treasured for generations to come!
