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.
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.
