wonderful experience
By Percy on Wednesday, December 18, 2013
My experience ordering from Gainesville Coins was incredible from start to finish. The staff really knows their stuff and they are very patient if you have a lot of questions. Also, I had these shipped internationally. They arrived very quickly and in mint condition. They will get my business again for sure.

Not my favorite
By Graham on Wednesday, December 18, 2013
This is a quality silver coin, like all coins from the Perth Mint, but I don't particularly like the design on this one. The river at the forefront of the design doesn't really look like water to me. I think some more subtle detailing would have been a better route to go. Other than that, Gainesville service is always superb, and somewhat poor design doesn't take away from the value of the coin.

I don't know a lot about coins but I love horses and was looking for something to display in my home. A friend of mine has a collection that he displays beautifully so I started looking into coins. These coins are beautiful and look great in my living room. Gainesville was super helpful and the process of buying online was very simple. I want to get all of the Year of the Horse coins, and maybe even get a complete set of the entire Chinese Zodiac to show off when guests come over!
