Why would this flawless First Day of Issue 2021 Vermilion Bird of the South Vault Protector Silver Proof Medal be an exciting addition to your collection?
This exquisite proof medal is the fourth and final release of the Four Guardians Vault Protector series. The vault protector was typically a larger version of the "cash coin" of ancient China, which was minted with a square hole at the center for hanging as a ward against evil. The series combines the ancient style with the mythology of the Four Guardians. This medal celebrates the Vermilion Bird, known as Zhuque in Chinese culture, the legendary protector of the southern direction on the compass and the summer season.
Breathtaking Vermilion Bird Design
Obverse: A mountainous, forested region of China, with the Great Wall winding through the uneven landscape is depicted on the obverse. "2021" is inscribed in the foliage at left, beside the medal's square hole, with "1 OZ AG .999" curving above.
Reverse: The reverse features a stunning high relief image of the Vermilion Bird, with its spectacular display of plumage wrapping around the central hole. Below, an ornate compass rose is surrounded by an array of auspicious clouds. Inscribed "VERMILION BIRD OF THE SOUTH - SUMMER." The beautiful image, along with the designs of the three previous Four Guardians series releases, was crafted by famed Shenzhen Mint coin artist Song Fei.
