Why add this flawless Proof 2021 Black Warrior of the North Vault Protector 3-Medal Set to your collection of precious metal treasures?
The Black Warrior, the Chinese mythological sentry of the northerly direction and the season of winter, is celebrated on the third release of the Four Guardians Vault Protector proof medal series. Known as Xuan Wu in Chinese culture, the Black Warrior is a creature with the figure of a black tortoise entwined with a serpent. The ancient Chinese Vault Protector style coin was characterized by a distinctive square hole at the center, which was used for hanging in doorways to ward against evil.
Gorgeous Black Warrior Imagery Inspired by Chinese Mythology
Obverse: The obverse features the Great Wall meandering across the rugged mountain peaks of China, with the date of issue "2021" in the foliage at left. Above, each medal is inscribed with its weight, metallic content and purity.
Reverse: The mythic Black Warrior creature is depicted on the reverse, featuring a black tortoise with a dragon's head snarling at the fierce serpent wrapped around its shell. Auspicious clouds dramatically envelop an ornate compass rose above, near the inscription "XUAN WU OF THE NORTH - WINTER." The beautifully detailed interpretation of the Xuan Wu was crafted by accomplished Shenzhen Mint coin designer Song Fei.
