INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

Another interesting coin struck from 5 ounces of pure silver by Perth Mint. It is a tribute of sorts to a popular Chinese legend that tells of celestial guardians. 

According to ancient Chinese mythology, the universe was divided into four quadrants marking the winter and summer solstices, as well as the autumn and spring equinoxes. These celestial quadrants were known as the "Four Heavenly Palaces," and each palace was represented by a guardian animal of the appropriate color and element.

The reverse of the coin depicts the guardians of the Four Heavenly Palaces, in a colorful finish

- The Black Turtle symbolizes winter and water. It symbolizes longevity, wisdom, knowledge and reproduction.
- The Blue Dragon symbolizes spring and wood. It is a symbol of supreme power; benevolent, just, bringing wealth and happiness.
- The Red Phoenix symbolizes summer and fire. It is a symbol of resurrection and immortality; it appeared in times of good fortune and was believed to bring good luck to people.
- The White Tiger symbolizes autumn and metal. He is the king of all animals and ruler of the mountains; a fierce protector with the power to exorcise evil spirits and ensure a good harvest.
