2020 Double Pixiu

1oz Silver Bullion Coin in Capsule

The Pixiu is a powerful Chinese mythical creature known to serve as a protector of the practitioners of Feng Shui. These creatures, often incorrectly categorised as a chimera, are symbols of wealth. In Chinese culture, the creatures have a lions body with wings on its back.

  • Limited mintage of only 50,000
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver in BU condition.
  • Bears a face value of $1 (AUD) backed by the federal government of Australia.
  • On the obverse is Queen Elizabeth II.

The design features two Pixiu facing one another. The pair sits atop a mound of coins with an oriental border theme around the top half of the coins design field. Though not visible to the naked eye, this side of the coin has a security feature that is micro-laser engraved into the design field. This single letter is visible under magnifying glass only. Designer Ing Ing Jong was first hired by the Perth Mint in 2011 as an apprentice and quickly showcased her talents. Beginning in 2013 with the Year of the Snake, she made annual, impressive contributions to the Perth Mint Lunar Series II collection of both silver and gold coins.

On the obverse is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The latest effigy in use on Australian coins, this bust of the Queen is adapted from the Jody Clark design debuted by the Royal Mint of England in 2016. The image shows the Queen wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown with her neckline and shoulders visible, a first on Australian coins since 1966.
