The fight scene featuring Lu Bu and his rivals is portrayed with exceptional accuracy on a high relief surface of this 3 ounce .999 pure silver coin. This composition makes allusion to traditional Chinese paintings, especially with highlighted background created with combination of color printing and gold plating.
