Why purchase this flawless First Day of Issue complete 4-piece proof set of 2021 Black Warrior of the North Vault Protector medals?
The third release of the Four Guardians Vault Protector proof medal series honors the Black Warrior, a symbol in Chinese mythology representing the northern direction, the season of winter and the color of black. The Black Warrior, or Xuan Wu, is typically represented as a black tortoise wrapped with a serpent. For this special release, the Black Warrior graphic is combined with a medal styled as an ancient Vault Protector, which featured a square hole to suspend as a charm to deter evil and encourage good fortune.
Breathtaking Homage to the Black Warrior
Obverse: The Great Wall of China is depicted on the obverse, amid the slopes of the nation's mountainous terrain. Inscribed "2021," with the appropriate weight, content and purity arcing above.
Reverse: Featured on the reverse is a Black Warrior, the entwined pair of a dragon-headed black tortoise and a serpent, with an array of auspicious clouds and a compass rose above. The inscription "XUAN WU OF THE NORTH - WINTER" curves near the design's left edge. The astoundingly detailed Black Warrior graphic is the work of Shenzhen Mint designer Song Fei, an internationally recognized coin artist, known for the design of the 2017 Panda bi-metal coin.
