This is the second in this Tokelau coin series which commenced with the Infinity Snake in 2013.



In the design of ancient Chinese currency, this ring-shaped coin depicts four intricately brush-painted dappled carousel horses. Each horse is bedecked in colorful ceremonial garb, including intricate saddles, stirrups, and halters. Horses were dressed in colorful finery for court and military ceremonies and were seen as a symbol of great prosperity. Ceremonial horses like these were the subject of numerous paintings, carvings, and sculptures.
