Why buy this 1 oz Silver Proof 2019 China Unicorn Vault Protector 25th Anniversary Medal?

Share in the China Mint's celebration of the 25th anniversary of the original coin in its famous Unicorn Series with this Vault Protector. This medal is the first Unicorn issue to feature a square hole at the center. Holes were common in Chinese coinage so that people could carry them on strings. Struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver, this piece is one of 2,888 pieces of its kind. It is perfect for collectors who appreciate medals that show contrasts of Eastern and Western traditions.

Striking Unicorns Design by Song Fei

On the obverse is a view of one of the Great Wall of China. Shown from the perspective of someone standing atop the structure, the design shows the wall meandering up one of the many hills along its path in Northern China. At the top is an inscription that reads, "1 OZ AG .999."

Song Fei, a designer at the Shenzhen Mint, created the reverse design. It consists of two unicorns opposite one another. To the upper left is an Eastern unicorn, which has a scaly coat that covers a deer-like body. It also has the tail of an ox. By contrast, the Western unicorn looks like a powerful horse save for the single horn on its head.

Flawless PF70 UC FR

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this piece is in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification by awarding it their highest grade, Proof 70. The grading company further credited it with exhibiting sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields by labeling it Ultra Cameo. Finally, they noted that it was received for grading within 30 days of its initial release from the mint by labeling it First Releases.

Now you can add this 2019 China 1 oz Silver Proof Unicorn Vault Protector 25th Anniversary Medal to your collection today.
