Striking Xuan Wu Design by Song Fei

Obverse: The Great Wall of China climbs a mountain on the reverse. The structure is shown from the perspective of someone standing on it. The date, "2021," is noted to the left, while the coin's weight and purity, "1 OZ AG .999," are inscribed at the top of this face.

Reverse: Song Fei's reverse design features a fierce Xuan Wu. The creature consists of an angry serpent that is curled around a dragon-headed tortoise. Its polished fangs and scales contrast beautifully with the frosted head and body. A compass is in the upper left, and there is an inscription in Chinese characters on the right. Along the rim on the left is the inscription "XUAN WU OF THE NORTH-WINTER."

Flawless PF70 UC FR

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece Proof 70. That means that it appears perfect under 5x magnification. NGC also certified the piece Ultra Cameo (UC) and First Releases (FR). The UC designation credits it for exhibiting particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields, while the FR designation means that it was submitted for grading no more than 30 days after its initial release from the mint.
