Why purchase this flawless First Day of Issue 2021 Black Warrior of the North Vault Protector Silver Proof Medal?
This magnificent proof medal with a square hole at the center, crafted in the style of an ancient Vault Protector, is the third release of the Four Guardians series. The coin is an homage to the Black Warrior (Xuan Wu in Chinese culture), a creature traditionally depicted as a black tortoise entwined with a snake. As one of Chinese mythology's Four Guardians, or Four Auspicious Beasts, the legendary creature protects the northern direction on the compass and the winter season.
Magnificently Detailed Black Warrior Imagery
Obverse: The obverse depicts a mountainous, forested region of China, with the Great Wall winding through the landscape. "2021" is inscribed in the foliage at left, with "1 OZ AG .999" curving above.
Reverse: The reverse features the mythical Black Warrior, a black tortoise with a dragon head, with an angry serpent wrapped around its form. Above, a compass rose is nestled within a collection of auspicious clouds. Inscribed "XUAN WU OF THE NORTH - WINTER." The stunning image was crafted by famed Chinese coin artist Song Fei, designer of the 2017 Panda bi-metal coin.
