A stunning tribute to a powerful ancient Chinese legend featuring four heavenly guardians, this extraordinary 5oz pure silver coin is exquisitely finished with coloured and antique treatments.

    Guardians of the four celestial palaces

    According to ancient Chinese mythology, the universe was divided into four quadrants marking the winter and summer solstices, and the autumn and spring equinoxes. These heavenly quadrants were known as the ‘Four Celestial Palaces’, with each palace represented by a guardian animal with a corresponding colour, element, and virtue.

    Extraordinary design

    The coin’s reverse portrays the guardians of the Four Celestial Palaces.

     Black Tortoise: (Season) Winter - (Element) Water Symbolic of longevity, wisdom, knowledge, and reproduction; with no males, females were said to mate with snakes.
     Blue Dragon: (Season) Spring - (Element) Wood A symbol of supreme power; benevolent, just, and the bringer of wealth and good fortune.
     Red Phoenix: (Season) Summer - (Element) Fire Symbolic of resurrection and immortality; appeared in times of good fortune and believed to bring happiness to the people.
     White Tiger: (Season) Autumn - (Element) Metal The king of all animals and the lord of the mountains; a fierce protector with the power to exorcise evil spirits and grant a good harvest.

     

    Represented in vibrant colour, the four Chinese mythical creatures surround a yin yang symbol at the centre of the antiqued coin’s reverse.

    Antique finish

    This coin has been individually ‘antiqued’ by hand to give a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin may vary.

    Presentation packaging

    Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a classic black display case and a brightly illustrated shipper.
