In the history of Ancient China, the Pixiu became popular figures with fierce facial expressions and bodies covered in white-grey fur. Often depicted as winged animals, Pixiu were once associated with major accomplishments in fantastic stories of power and victory in battle. In historical depictions, the Pixiu are shown with the powerful, ferocious head of a Chinese dragon, the body of a lion, and an antler on the head if the Pixiu is a female, and no antlers if the Pixiu is a male.
The obverse side of 2021 Gold Australian Guardian Lions Double Pixiu Coins features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait of Her Majesty was created in 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England. The fifth-generation effigy on British coins, this design is actually the sixth-generation effigy on Australian coins. It was adopted beginning in 2019 and is the first portrait of the Queen on Australian coins since 1966 to include the neckline and shoulders of the Queen.
On the reverse field of 2021 1 oz Gold Guardian Lions Double Pixiu Coins is a depiction of the Pixiu pair.
