Why add this limited mintage 2021 Vermilion Bird of the South Four Guardians Vault Protector 5 oz. Silver GEM Proof Medal to your collection of precious metals?

The fourth and final release of the Vault Protector proof medal series dedicated to the mythical Four Guardians honors the Vermilion Bird, the symbol for the color red, and the sentinel of the element of fire, the season of summer and the southern direction of the compass. The Four Guardians are Chinese constellations, chosen for their north, south, east and westerly positions along the ecliptic (the plane of the earth's orbit around the sun). This 2021 dated proof medal features a square hole at the center, modelled after the distinct shape of an ancient Chinese cash coin. Vault protectors, like this medal, were large, heavy versions of the cash coin, which were believed to ward off evil and welcome good luck, when suspended with a red silk cord.

  • This 2021 Four Guardians Vermilion Bird of the South medal is struck from 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
  • The non-denominated medal is a product product of the New Century Mint (Shanghai, China).
  • The medal measures an impressive 70 mm in diameter.
  • The Vault Protector medal features a "cash coin" style square hole and a spectacular proof finish.
  • The medal will ship with its original Mint issued Authenticity Certificate.
  • Mintage is limited to merely 500 pieces.

Dramatic Representation of the Vermilion Bird

Obverse: A beautiful view of the Great Wall of China is featured on the obverse, as it meanders along the peaks of China's mountainous landscape, and around the medal's square hole. Inscribed "5 OZ AG .999" and "2021."

Reverse: A gorgeous high relief rendition of the Vermilion Bird is depicted on the reverse, sweeping its magnificent plumage around the square opening. The inscription "VERMILION BIRD OF THE SOUTH - SUMMER" curves beneath a stylized compass rose and an auspicious cloud pattern below. The impressive design is the work of acclaimed artist Song Fei, the Shenzhen Mint coin designer who is responsible for the imagery for the entire Four Guardians Vault Protector series, along with the design of the 2017 Panda bi-metal coin.
