Why order this 2-Piece 2019 China Unicorn Vault Protector 25th Anniversary 5 oz Silver Proof Medal + 1 oz Silver Medal Set?
Vault Protectors were struck in ancient China to be hung in the treasury. They were struck with a hole in the middle through which red silk would be used to hang them above an incense table. They were called "Vault Protectors" because they were believed to guard against evil and ill fortune. Now, the China Mint is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the country's Unicorn Series with these new Vault Protectors. One of these pieces was struck from 5 oz of .999 fine silver, while the other was struck from 1 oz of it. 2,888 of the smaller medals were struck at the Shanghai Mint, while just 500 of the larger ones were.
Stunning Unicorns Designs by Song Fei
Both of these medals feature the same designs. The obverses bear a powerful image of the Great Wall as it meanders up one of the many mountains along its course. Inscriptions at the top offer each piece's weight and purity.
On the reverses are a pair of unicorns. One is an Eastern unicorn, and the other is a Western unicorn. The Western unicorn looks like a horse save for a single horn on its head. The Eastern one has a scaly coat that covers the body of a goat, the tail of an ox, and two horns.
