One Troy ounce of .9999 fine silver in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Includes artwork by Lucas Bowers

In this design, we see the mythical bird inflight with a paulownia flower in its beak. Some believe that the paulownia tree is the only genus of tree species the phoenix will sit in. In the background, you will find various cloud designs. Inscriptions include a mint mark and designer Lucas Bower’s initials.

The phoenix is undoubtedly one of the most iconic birds in the history of mythology. Just take a cursory glance at popular culture over the years and you’ll find countless depictions of the phoenix, in everything from Harry Potter and Pokémon to Shakespeare and Mozart. In Chinese culture, these birds are important providers of positive chi. Most recently, the Chinese phoenix was seen in the 2020 film Mulan, where it appeared as a guide and symbol of hope for the story’s heroine.
