The pixiu was most commonly depicted in Ancient Chinese art and architecture in a male-female pairing. The male of the species is in charge of wealth and often goes out into the world in search of gold, silver, and other forms of wealth to provide to its master. The female is responsible for warding off evil spirits.
All pixiu are said to have the body of a lion with the head of a dragon. The only means of identifying male and female in the species is the antlers. While a female has two antlers, the male has only one antler atop its head.
The obverse face of 2020 Proof Silver Australian Guardian Lions Double Pixiu Coins includes the bust of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted in this release with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head and she is shown in right-profile relief. The image was designed in 2015 by Jody Clark and first appeared on British coins from the Royal Mint of England in 2016.
On the reverse side of 2020 2 oz Proof Silver Double Pixiu Coins is an image of the male and female pixiu. The male is shown on the left of the design field with a small ball in its paw, while the female is shown on the right side of the design with a pixiu club in its paw.
