The ancient Chinese warrior Zhao Yun was a commander during the late Han

Dynasty and early Three Kingdoms division of China, one of the most turbulent

and bloody periods in its history. Originally in the service of northern warlord

Gongsun Zan, Zhao Yun switched allegiance to Liu Be, who founded the state

of Shu Han in 221. Accompanying his master on many military expeditions in

their struggle for dominance, Zhao Yun is reputed to have died in 229 at the

age of 61.

Physically impressive, Zhao Yun was mythologised in the 14th century

manuscript Romance of the Three Kingdoms in which he was portrayed as a

model warrior possessing expert combat skills, supreme courage and

unwavering loyalty. He is especially remembered for his exploits at the Battle

of Changban in 208 where Liu Bei was forced to abandon his position – and

his family – while under attack from rival warlord Cao Cao. In fact, Zhao Yun

had risked all to rescue his master’s baby son Liu Shan and for his valour was

promoted to the rank of General of the Standard.

DESIGN

The coin’s reverse portrays Chinese military general Zhao Yun astride a

warhorse during the Battle of Changban. Staring down enemy soldiers while

sheltering prince Liu Shan within the folds of his tunic, Zhao Yun is brandishing

an ornate spear (qiang) which has been coloured blue and gold. The

inscription 赵云, the Chinese characters for Zhao Yun, also appear in the

design.

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is portrayed

on the coin’s obverse which also includes the coin’s weight, purity, monetary

denomination and 2021 year-date.

No more than 388 of the Zhao Yun 2021 5oz Silver Coloured Antiqued Coin

will be released.
