2017 Australia 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Stock Horse NGC MS70 First Releases
Experience the agility, speed and energy of the Australian Stock Horse!
The Australian Stock horse has long been considered the finest and most versatile horse in the world. The horse was first bred in the early 1800s, when breeders from Australia favored the thoroughbred horses of America and Europe. They imported them in large numbers to breed with local Australian mares, creating a horse that was as useful as it was elegant.
In the few hundred years since, the Australian Stock Horse has fulfilled a variety of roles. Most notably among these was when over 100,000 of these horses served in the cavalry during the First World War. During this historic conflict, these powerful beasts were often credited with impressive feats of both strength and reliability in battle. Now, in 2017, the Perth Mint has chosen to feature this magnificent creature on the reverse of their one-ounce Silver Stock Horse coin!
