 2020 2oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin - Double Pixiu

This stunning silver proof high relief coin honours one of the most auspicious mythological beasts in traditional Chinese culture – the Pixiu.

Said to have voracious appetites for gold, silver and jewels, Chinese Pixiu are fierce, lion-like creatures with heads resembling that of a dragon. Often portrayed in pairs in art and architecture, their mystical powers are believed to help people attract wealth.

Dramatic Double Reverse Design
The dramatic depiction on this coin’s high relief reverse shows two Pixiu sitting on a mound of Chinese coins while grasping a Pixiu club and ball. The noticeably raised images appear on a highly-polished concave surface. Including a traditional pattern in the background, the design also features The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Presentation Packaging with Numbered Certificate
This coin is housed in a classic display case within a themed shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
