Why buy this Proof 2019 China Unicorn Vault Protector 88 g Platinum Medal?
Step back in time with this stunning Platinum Unicorn Vault Protector. For centuries, coins in China were struck with square holes in the enter so that they could be carried on strings. This vault protector is the first ever release of the modern China Mint to have that design feature. It was minted to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the mint's Unicorn. This piece was struck from 88 g of .999 fine platinum and is part of a mintage of just 88 pieces. The number 8 is used because it is considered lucky in Chinese culture.
Breathtaking Two Unicorns Design by Song Fei
The obverse design gives the holder a look at one of the world's most famous landmarks, the Great Wall of China, from the perspective of someone standing on it. The view looks up at the wall as it winds up a mountain along its path. Inscriptions at the top offer the medal's weight and purity, reading, "88G PT .999."
The reverse features two unicorns among the clouds. The image, which was designed by Song Fei, depicts one Eastern unicorn and one Western one. The Eastern unicorn, which is known as a "qilin," has the body of a goat that is covered by a scaly coat. It also has curved horns. More familiar to American collectors is the Western unicorn, which looks like a horse except for a single pointed horn that extends from its forehead.
