The silver coin came out a little while ago, but now a gold version has joined it. This is also a 1oz round, but struck in 0.999 gold and with a relatively small mintage of 1,200 pieces. The obverse is exactly the same as the new 2020 Chiwoo, an enhanced version of the one employed on previous issues (except for the date, of course). The silver 1oz round has a mintage of 22,000 pieces, so just two-thirds the number of Chiwoo’s.
You can see the first three issues below. Each is an excellent piece of artwork, displaying that distinctive East Asian style that has increased in popularity in recent years. There have been numerous limited variants in the past. A 10oz silver version, as well as proof
silver numismatics (including part gilded variants), so hopefully that will
be the case again. There was even 2019 issue with a lenticular
background called ‘Eclipse’, which we’ve depicted below instead of the
standard bullion version.
Well worth a look, this is one of the more interesting bullion series on offer at the moment and is scheduled to continue through to 2028. It should be a fine looking series when complete. Available now in silver form, with gold hitting dealers shortly. They can be bought directly from the distributor, Coins Today, or from a broad range of dealers worldwide.
