Secure this exceptionally struck limited mintage 2023 Black Unicorn 1 oz. silver proof two-piece medal for your collection today!

Why should this gorgeously minted 2023 Black Unicorn 1 oz. silver split proof medal be the next addition to your collection?

This extraordinary silver-proof medal from Shanghai Mint Ltd. in China is dedicated to the mythology of the Black Unicorn. The visual appearance and the symbolism of the creature differs between the cultures of the East and West. The Eastern Black Unicorn of Chinese legends features the combined physical characteristics of a lion, a dragon, a deer and an ox, and is revered as a symbol of serenity, protection, and fertility. The Western Black Unicorn, which is associated with freedom, good luck, and prosperity, is horse-like in form, with a single conical horn. As a tribute to the harmony in the contrast between the Eastern and Western Black Unicorns, the medal's imagery is confined within the shape of the Yin Yang symbol. The uniquely designed medal splits apart into two halves along the central curve of the symbol.

  • This 2023 Black Unicorn medal is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
  • The medal innovatively splits into two pieces, which each weigh 1/2 oz.
  • When assembled, the medal measures 40 mm in diameter.
  • The reverse of the non-denominational medal features a combination of a proof and reverse proof finish.
  • The medal was struck at the Shanghai Mint Ltd. in China and is not legal tender.
  • The medal will arrive with a Mint-issued Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Mintage is limited to only 2,888 pieces.

Sensational 2-Part Black Unicorn Design

Obverse: The obverse showcases the distinct shape of the Yin-Yang symbol and boasts a mirrored proof finish. Each half of the symbol features a circular inset adorned with the entrance facade of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. The date of issue "2023" appears below each occurrence of the landmark structure.

Reverse: The Yin Yang symbol outline continues on the reverse, with an Eastern Unicorn depicted on one half and a Western Unicorn illustrated on the other. The Eastern Unicorn half is accented with a reverse-proof finish, while the Western Unicorn is accented with a mirrored-proof finish, adding an additional layer of visual contrast between the two interpretations of the majestic mythical creature. Inscribed "AG 999 1 OZ," with "BLACK UNICORN" in English and Mandarin. The astoundingly detailed unicorn graphics were crafted by award-winning Shanghai Mint coin artist Zhu Xihua.
