2020 1 oz Australia Guardian Lions (Double Pixiu) .9999 Silver Coin BU
We are excited to release this 1oz silver bullion coin featuring an ancient Chinese symbol of fortune, happiness and wealth, the Guardian Lions (Double Pixiu).
The Pixiu is a mythological creature with the head of a dragon and the body of a lion and is believed to have an insatiable appetite for gold, silver and jewels which affords it mystical powers capable of drawing wealth from all directions. The Pixiu is a common symbol found in ancient Chinese art and architecture where it is traditionally
displayed in pairs.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and has a mintage of 50,000.
The coin's reverse design features a representation of a Pixiu pair sitting upon a mound of ancient Chinese coins. One grasps a ball and the other a Pixiu cub. The design also includes a stylised pattern and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2020 year-date, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
The Guardian Lions (Double Pixiu) 2020 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
