Why purchase this 2021 Terracotta Warriors Ultra High Relief 1/2 gram gold proof coin?

A grand Terracotta Army of over 8,000 warriors was built in the late third century to serve as the afterlife guard of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. Established as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, the astounding discovery of the army was made in 1974, remarkably, by a few local farmers with the purpose of digging a well almost a mile away from the emperor's tomb mound. This beautiful gold coin issued by the Cook Islands is a celebration of the history-making find.

  • This 2021 Terracotta Warriors coin is struck from 1/2 gram of .9999 fine gold by the Mayer Mint.
  • The coin measures 11 mm in diameter, featuring a gorgeous proof finish.
  • The coin's ultra high relief design is a result of CIT's enhanced smartminting technology.
  • Mintage is limited to 5,000 coins.
