The Central Bank will issue a commemorative coin set for 2014, the Chinese Zodiac Year of the Horse, on January 9, 2014. Each set consists of one silver coin weighing an ounce as well as two proof coins in different denominations. The silver coin has a face value of NT$100, and the two proof coins NT$50 and NT$20, respectively.

The Bank has delegated the Bank of Taiwan to sell the coin sets to the public on a first-come, first-served basis, limited to one set per purchaser at a time. A total of 120,000 coin sets will be issued. Each coin set costs NT$1,800.

Constructed in 1700 A.D. during the Qing Dynasty, the Temple boasts a history of more than 300 years. It has been designated a national monument.
