The Red Silver Phoenix 1 oz silver coin, minted in 2020 by the New Zealand Mint.
The New Zealand Mint has a very large market in China, one of the countries that consumes the most precious metals. To strengthen their community, they created a series that drew on their classical historical heritage: Celestial Animals, a collection representing the animals of Feng Shui, a philosophical current of classical China.
The main protagonist of this series is the Red Phoenix, associated with the south and fire. According to the spatial arrangement of the houses, in order for the Phoenix to be present in the houses, space should be left on the façade.
The animal appears on the cross of the coin. On a flat background, bordering the coin is a small circumference containing a series of decorative elements formed by circular figures.
In the centre of the coin is the animal, which resembles a peacock with flapping wings. One leg is tucked in while the other is taut, supporting the full weight of the body. What is particularly striking about the design is the number of decorative figures on the bird's feathers.
On the face is the face of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian-Rank Broadley: around the monarch, her name, the name of the country where the coin is minted, the face value (2 dollars) and the year of issue.
This 1 oz. silver The Red Silver Phoenix coin, minted in 2020 by New Zealand has a diameter of 39.00 millimetres and a thickness of 2.98 millimetres. Complete the entire collection at the best price!
