2021 5oz Mythical Creatures Silver Antiqued Coloured Coin
Product Code: 21S3100
According to the ancient Chinese mythology, the universe was divided into four quadrants marking the beginning and end of the winter and summer solstices, and the autumn and spring equinoxes.
These heavenly quadrants were known as the ‘Four Celestial Palaces’, with each palace represented by a guardian animal (Blue Dragon, White Tiger, Red Phoenix, Black Tortoise) with a corresponding colour, element, and virtue.
The design features the four Chinese ancient mythical creatures in vibrant colour, with a yin yang symbol in the centre of the coin. The design includes the inscription CHINESE ANCIENT MYTHICAL CREATURES. The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the weight and fineness, the 2021 year-date and the monetary denomination.
To capture the depth and detail of the design, the coin is stuck in high relief to a rimless format and features an antique finish.
Each coin is housed in a classic display case within an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
