1oz Gold Coin 2021 Double Pixiu - Perth Mint

The Pixiu is a mythological creature with the head of a dragon and the body of a lion and is believed to have an
insatiable appetite for gold, silver and jewels which affords it mystical powers capable of drawing wealth from all
directions. The Pixiu is a common symbol found in ancient Chinese art and architecture where it is traditionally
displayed in pairs.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian
Currency Act 1965 and has a mintage of 5,000. With only 500 available in Australia.

The coin's reverse design features a representation of a Pixiu pair sitting upon a mound of ancient Chinese coins. One grasps a ball and the other a Pixiu cub. The design also includes a stylised pattern and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2021 year-date, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.

The Double Pixiu 2021 1oz Gold Bullion Coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.

Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the design. It is
only detectable under a magnifying glass.

Perth Mint coins come encased in a hard clear plastic case to help keep coins in pristine condition. Ainslie Bullion recommends leaving these cases un-tampered for the best preservation of value.

The Perth Mint is Australia’s leading precious metal refiner accredited by the LBMA. Backed by the Western Australian Government, The Perth Mint has produced the official bullion coin program since 1987. The Perth Mint also produces a large range of high quality gold and silver bars. All Perth Mint gold products are LBMA accredited and refined to 99.99% purity (= 24 carat) and all silver products are refined to 99.9% purity. Ainslie Bullion is a Primary Bullion Distributor for Perth Mint.

Coins are a popular choice of bullion given their legal tender status (Government backing of the coin and its metal content), often smaller in size (making for easier disposal in the event of large price increases), international recognition (no fuss tradability overseas) and portability. Another common advantage is mintage limits on many government minted coins meaning a “collectable” premium can often be realised. Caution should be exercised in buying coins over bars for your Super as they can be classified as a collectable and need special storage. Refer to the ATO or your advisor for more information. Coins can make for the perfect gift as you can match the year or Lunar Year to the recipient to celebrate an event (eg Christening, 18th, 21st, Anniversary).
