Why does this First Day of Issue 2021 Vermilion Bird of the South Vault Protector 1 oz. and 5 oz. Silver Proof Medal Set deserve a place in your collection?

A gorgeously crafted design celebrating the significance of the legendary Vermilion Bird is featured on the fourth and final release of the Four Guardians proof medal series. The medals are struck with a square hole at the center, emulating the style of an ancient vault protector. Vault protectors were traditionally large coins minted not for circulation, but for hanging by a red silk ribbon to deter evil and disaster, while attracting good luck and prosperity. The Vermilion Bird symbolizes the element of fire and the color red, and is the guardian of the summer season and the southerly direction in Chinese mythology.

  • This Four Guardians Vault Protector set is comprised of two 2021 Vermilion Bird of the South medals: a 1 oz. medal with a mintage of 1,888 pieces, and a 5 oz. medal with a mintage of only 500.
  • Each non-denominated medal is struck from .999 fine silver.
  • The medals feature the signature square hole of an ancient vault protector.
  • Each medal boasts a breathtaking proof finish.
  • The pair of medals received the highly sought after First Day of Issue attribution.
  • Each medal includes a Four Guardians themed label signed by the medal's designer.
  • New Century Mint issued Certificates of Authenticity are included with the set.

Magnificent Vermilion Bird Imagery

Obverse: China's Great Wall gently curls around the medal's square hole on the obverse, beside the date of issue "2021." The inscription "AG .999" curves above, along with the appropriate weight.

Reverse: The fabulously feathered, high relief form of a Vermilion Bird is boldly depicted on the reverse, nearly encircling the central hole. A stylized compass rose and auspicious clouds appear on the field below, a design element common to all releases of the series. Inscribed "VERMILION BIRD OF THE SOUTH - SUMMER." The mythical images created for all four of the Four Guardians Vault Protector medals are credited to acclaimed Shenzhen Mint coin designer Song Fei.

Flawless Proof 70 Set

This 2021 Chinese Vermilion Bird of the South Silver Proof Medal Set was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for review, each medal earning the perfect Proof 70 Ultra Cameo (UC) grade.
