The Coin Company is proud to present Zhao Yun 2021 5oz Silver Coloured Antiqued Coin, produced by the Perth Mint.
The ancient Chinese warrior Zhao Yun was a commander during the late Han Dynasty and early Three Kingdoms division of China, one of the most turbulent and bloody periods in its history. Originally in the service of northern warlord Gongsun Zan, Zhao Yun switched allegiance to Liu Be, who founded the state of Shu Han in 221. Accompanying his master on many military expeditions in their struggle for dominance, Zhao Yun is reputed to have died in 229 at the age of 61.
The coin’s reverse portrays Chinese military general Zhao Yun astride a warhorse during the Battle of Changban. Staring down enemy soldiers while sheltering prince Liu Shan within the folds of his tunic, Zhao Yun is brandishing an ornate spear (qiang) which has been coloured blue and gold. The inscription 赵云, the Chinese characters for Zhao Yun, also appear in the design.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is portrayed on the coin’s obverse which also includes the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination and 2021 year-date.
Zhao Yun 2021 5oz Silver Coloured Antiqued Coin, has a limited mintage of 388 coins.
