Unicorn Vault protector

Second Wave of Popular 2019 Unicorn Vault Proofs Now Available

In East Asia, bronze “cash” coins were used for commerce. These round coins were cast with a square hold in the center, used to string coins together for easier counting and transportation. Collectors around the world are familiar with these classic coins, but what many don’t know is that a larger, more elite version was also cast in far smaller numbers…

The Vault Protector
On very special occasions in ancient times, Chinese mints would cast larger, thicker, heavier coins that also bore the square hole. These coins were not made for circulation, but for ornamentation. At the treasury, these coins would be hung with red silk string through their holes, placed over the altar in the treasury’s spirit hall, where offerings could be made to gods of fortune, prosperity and wealth.

These “Vault Protector” coins were believed to protect their owners against disaster and ensure the favor of the gods. For this reason, those with the financial means would often secure one of these coins and leave it in their vaults to guard the rest of their fortune.

A Special Anniversary
2019 marks the 25th anniversary of China’s original Unicorn coin series. Released in 1994, the coin featured both Eastern and Western depictions of the mythological creature. More importantly, it’s become an incredibly prized coin by collectors for its scarcity—just 10,000 one-ounce silver, 1,500 five-ounce silver and just 1,100 one-ounce gold Unicorn Proofs were struck.

Now, 25 years later, the Unicorn is reborn as a special Vault Protector Proof—the first-ever Unicorn to feature the square “cash” hole!

Unicorn Vault Protector Features

Protect Your Vault with Pure Silver and Gold

Struck in a full kilo of 99.9% fine silver, 88 “lucky” grams of 99.9% pure gold and 88 “lucky” grams 99.9% pure platinum (the number “8” being considered very lucky in Chinese culture), the 2019 Unicorn Vault Protector Proofs are unlike anything in your collection.

Struck in stunning Proof condition, utilizing multiple, high-pressure strikes with specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks, these pieces feature frosty designs and lustrous, mirror-like fields.

Unlike the original Unicorn Proof struck in 1994, these 25th anniversary proofs display both the Eastern and Western Unicorn designs together, allowing you to examine the fine detail and interesting differences without having to flip the coin over. If you do, though, you’ll be treated to a stunning view of the Great Wall of China stretching out before you to meet the horizon.

The design comes to us by prominent Chinese coin designer Song Fei, creator of several nationally recognized designs, including 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2009 Chinese Lunar Zodiac coins and the 2017 Panda bi-metal coin.

Certified by NGC as First Day of Issue and Signed by Song Fei
