An ancient symbol of honesty, benevolence and knowledge, the Chinese mythical phoenix’s rare appearances were believed to herald forthcoming happiness, harmony and prosperity. An immortal creature, it is traditionally portrayed as a fusion of several other birds – including the head of a pheasant, the body of a mandarin duck, the tail of a peacock, the beak of a parrot and the wings of a swallow.

The Chinese Myths and Legends Phoenix 2022 2oz Gold Proof High Relief Coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure gold and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1935.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 250 of the Chinese Myths And Legends – Phoenix 2022 2oz Gold Proof High Relief Coin.

DESIGN

The coin’s high relief design portrays a stylised artistic impression of a Chinese phoenix. In its beak is the flower of a paulownia tree, said to be the only species on which the phoenix will perch. Also included in the design are representations of clouds, symbols of abundance and good fortune, as well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin portrays the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, together with its weight, purity, monetary denomination, and 2022 year-date.

PRESENTATION

The coin is housed in a classic display case with a wooden lid. Packaged within an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
