Why purchase this 2020 White Tiger of the West Vault Protector 5 oz. Silver GEM Proof Medal?
This release of the China Mint's Vault Protector proof medal series dedicated to the Four Guardians honors the symbol for autumn, the White Tiger of the West. Minted with a square hole at the center, the medal replicates the shape of an ancient Chinese cash coin. Large, heavy versions of the cash coins were produced for spiritual purposes, hung with red silk to serve as a ward against evil. A product of the New Century Mint (Shanghai, China), this 2020 White Tiger of the West medal measures an impressive 70 mm in diameter, struck from 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver. Mintage is limited to merely 500 pieces.
Dramatic Advancing Tiger Imagery by Mint Designer Song Fei
The reverse features a fierce White Tiger with claws extended, as it steps around the square hole. The inscription "WHITE TIGER OF THE WEST - AUTUMN" curves beneath a stylized compass rose below.
A portion of the Great Wall of China is depicted on the obverse, as it trails along the peaks of China's mountainous landscape. Inscribed "5 OZ AG .999" and "2020."
