Why add this 1 oz. Silver GEM Proof 2021 Black Warrior of the North Vault Protector medal to your collection?
The third release of the Vault Protector silver proof medal Four Guardians series celebrates the Black Warrior, a symbol for the northern direction and the season of winter. The Black Warrior, known as Xuan Wu in Chinese culture, is a mythical black tortoise wrapped with a serpent. The medal is shaped as a traditional vault protector, with a square hole. Vault Protectors are ancient charms which were suspended from the hole with a red ribbon, and believed to be powerful wards against evil and disaster.
Exquisitely Crafted Black Warrior Design
Obverse: A stunning rendition of China's landmark Great Wall is located on the obverse, wandering through mountainous terrain and around the coin's square hole. Inscriptions include "1 OZ AG .999" and "2021."
Reverse: A dragon-headed black tortoise entwined with a snarling serpent is depicted on the reverse. An ornate compass rose is positioned above, surrounded by a stylized auspicious cloud design. Inscribed "XUAN WU OF THE NORTH - WINTER." The impressive design is the work of acclaimed artist Song Fei, a coin designer for China's Shenzhen Mint.
