The universal power of the horse.
No single animal has contributed more to the development and spread of civilization than the horse. It fuelled farms; powered armies and was the privilege of emperors and kings. For centuries, the horse was a significant status symbol, often portrayed in statues and carvings buried with important figures in history. Legends abound. From east to west, the horse embodies the same compelling character, making it a natural symbol for this coin that celebrates the tradition and history of Chinese communities; the strength that is an integral part of Canadian culture and nationhood.
