After a tumultuous 2020 racked by pandemics, wildfires, earthquakes and more, a return to a slower-paced life is a much needed respite.

The second sign in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, the Ox is a powerful and balanced animal that always find a way to get back on its feet even during difficult times. What better symbol could be depicted for 2021? And that’s just the image you’ll find on this Year of the Ox Blossom-Shaped Silver Proof from China!
Rugged Ox Design Powerfully Lumbers Into 2021
Struck in 30 grams of highly pure 99.9% fine silver, this exquisite coin evokes a fluid tranquil motion with its curved blossom shape. It depicts a stylized version of a strong and powerful ox, his head down intent on the task at hand. The coin’s obverse features China’s national emblem, year date, and the words “Year of the Ox” in Mandarin Chinese.
