In 2019 Niue in cooperation with the Mint of Poland has issued this unique 2 oz silver coin, the first issue of Ancient Chinese Warrior series. The coin is dedicated to Zhao Yun, a military general who lived at the turn of the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D.

Why this silver coin is so special:
- First coin in Ancient Chinese Warrior series;
- Struck of 2 oz of pure 999 silver;
- Amazing details in ultrahigh relief;
- Selectively gilded elements;
- Released only for China – extremely rare;
- Great cultural and historical value!

Design:
At the very first sight, this Niue silver coin draws your attention with its stunning design. The reverse of the coin depicts Zhao Yun riding a horse and holding a gilded spear. The ultrahigh relief looks quite impressive on this silver coin, especially with so many details: the warrior’s armor, the spear and the scene in general. We cannot miss the obverse as well, since along with traditional inscriptions and the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II this side is decorated with a wonderful Chinese-style pattern of dragons.

About Zhao Yun:
The choice to make Zhao Yun the theme for the first release in the series seems quite reasonable as this person takes a significant place in Chinese culture and history. Having become almost legendary, he is famous for taking parts in numerous battles – the Battle of Changban, the Battle of Red Cliffs, Hanzhang Campaign and many others. Luo Guanzhong, the author of 14th century’s “Romance of the Three Kingdoms”, describes Zhao Yun as the skillful, courageous and charismatic warrior. And despite the fact that this novel gives us only a 1000-word hint of who this warrior really was, Zhao Yun has been a well-known hero of numerous folktales, pieces of literature and art. No surprise that even modern culture appreciates this hero – Zhao Yun has been portrayed in modern film adaptations, video games, card games and manhua.
