Why purchase this flawless First Day of Issue 3-piece Proof Set of 2021 Vermilion Bird of the South Vault Protector Medals?

The ancient Chinese Vault Protector style coin was minted with a distinctive square hole at the center, for the purpose of hanging as a ward against evil. The Four Guardians series pairs the mystique of the vault protector with Chinese mythology, honoring the creatures of legend that guard the seasons and cardinal directions. This 2021 dated proof medal set, representing the fourth and final release of the Four Guardians series, celebrates the Vermilion Bird (Zhuque in Chinese culture), protector of the south, the season of summer, the color red and the element of fire.

  • All releases of the Four Guardians Vault Protectors series were crafted at the New Century Mint in Shanghai, China
  • Three non-denominated 2021 Vermilion Bird of the South medals are included in this set: a 1 oz. gold (mintage 200), a 1 oz. silver (mintage 1,888) and a 5 oz. silver (mintage 500).
  • Each medal is struck with a magnificent proof finish and a metallic fineness of .999.
  • Each medal in the set was awarded the coveted First Day of Issue designation.
  • Each medal includes a Four Guardians themed, designer signed label.
  • The set will arrive with each medal's original Certificate of Authenticity.

Enchanting Vermilion Bird Design by Artist Song Fei

Obverse: The obverse showcases the architectural marvel, the Great Wall of China, as it journeys across the nation's sloping landscape, while partially framing the medal's square hole. Above, each medal is inscribed with its weight, content and purity, with the date of issue "2021," located in the foliage at left.

Reverse: A beautiful, high relief rendition of the mythic Vermilion Bird adorns the reverse, with its body and long, curling tail feathers strategically placed around the square opening at the center. An intricate compass rose encircled by auspicious clouds, and the inscription "VERMILION BIRD OF THE SOUTH - SUMMER" are located below. Currently a designer for China's Shenzhen Mint, Song Fei is also credited with the entirety of the Four Guardians series' releases, as well as the design of the 2017 Panda bi-metal coin.

Magnificently Minted Proof 70 Ultra Cameo Set

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) received this 3-piece 2021 China Vermilion Bird of the South Vault Protector Proof Medal Set for grading and qualified for the coveted First Day of Issue attribution.
