  • ANNOUNCING LATEST IN LUNAR CALENDAR SERIES: YEAR OF THE HORSE

    PAMP is pleased to announce the latest edition in its beloved Lunar Calendar Series with the release of the 2014 Year of the Horse ingot.

    Celebrated by the Chinese for its essential role in the advancement of civilizations, the horse heralds a year of adventurous progress and courageous development. The horse’s symbolic qualities of strength and power mixed  with grace and nobility have helped it to become one of   the most popular motifs in Asian culture. Each of those qualities is beautifully conveyed in the 2014 Year of the Horse ingot.

    Precisely minted in fine gold or fine silver, the ingot features the unique and eye-catching front-to-back design that has become the hallmark of the series. The original and innovative design effect depicts the elegant horse standing proudly against a lone tree, and shows the animal from both sides.

    As with all editions of the Lunar Calendar Series, the 2014 Year of the Horse ingot is sealed within brilliant red, CertiPAMP packaging, ready-made for gift-giving; whether it is meant to express hopes for the advancement of a friendship or business venture in the new year, or as a source of strength and personal development for the experienced bullion enthusiast.
