Perth Mint at Art in Coins 
We are excited to offer this 2oz silver antiqued coin featuring an ancient Chinese symbol of fortune, happiness and wealth, the 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 2oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and it carries a good fortune mintage of 888 pieces.

Coin design:

The coin’s reverse 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 2021 year-date, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.

This coin has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it 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:

The coin is presented in a classic grey display case, within a themed shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
