Double Your Fortune with Australia’s “Imperial Lion” Coin

More powerful than a fortune cookie, the mythological Pixiu is a creature so auspicious that people in China refer to it as the “Fortune Beast.” This lion-looking beast has the head of dragon, the body of a horse and the legs of a kylin. It also has the ability to fly — an important skill as it attempts to satisfy its insatiable appetite for gold, silver and jewels. A traditional Chinese symbol of fortune, happiness and wealth, the Pixiu is now the focus of a new bullion series from the Australia’s Perth Mint that seeks to add good fortune and wealth to your coin collection!

Truck in a full ounce of 99.99% pure silver, this legal-tender coin depicts a Pixiu pair sitting upon a mound of ancient Chinese coins. One grasps a ball and the other a Pixiu cub. According to Chinese mythology, the Pixiu possesses mystical powers that allow it to draw wealth from any and all directions. The Pixiu is also a common symbol found in ancient Chinese art and architecture where it is traditionally displayed in pairs. Perhaps the most famous pair is an imperial duo that can be seen in Beijing, China where they stand at the entrance to the Hall of Supreme Harmony in The Forbidden City.

Each 2020 Australia One-Ounce Silver Double Pixiu coin available here comes in original Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition with razor-sharp details that are as fresh and crisp as the day it left the mint. Plus, each coin also includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the design detectable only under a magnifying glass.
