Why purchase this 5 oz. Silver GEM Proof 2019 Unicorn Vault Protector Medal?

The China Mint introduced its Unicorn series in 1994. This gorgeous medal, struck from 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver at the New Century Mint in Shanghai, China, is issued in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the Unicorn series. The 70 mm diameter 2019 "Vault Protector," with a mintage of only 500 pieces, is the first-ever Unicorn minted with a square "cash coin" style hole at the center. Cash coins date back to the 4th century BC, minted in China and East Asia. The Vault Protector variety of cash coin was a large, heavy, non-circulation coin, struck primarily as a charm to be hung at the treasury as protection against evil and disaster.

The reverse features two unicorns with auspicious clouds in the background. The unicorn at lower right represents the Western style, horse-like creature with a single spiral horn. The Eastern style unicorn at upper left, also known as a Kirin, is more dragon-like in appearance, with scaled skin and a spiked back.

The Great Wall of China curves dramatically around the square hole on the obverse, with "5 OZ AG .999" inscribed above.
