The first coin in the series features Erlang Shen (二郎神), the most powerful heavenly warrior and a popular character in the popular novel Journey to the West. He is widely known in the Chinese Gods Mythology for his third eye, and his celestial hound (嘯天犬), Erlang Shen’s iconic three-pointed, double-edge lance and his warrior cloak are gilded in gold. He stands in front of the grand heavenly gates in preparation for a celestial battle.
The coin bears an ultra-high relief effect in antique finishing that brings to life the heavenly warrior’s awe. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley and is legal tender in Niue. The coin is presented in a matching thematic gift box.
