Queen Elizabeth II is shown on the obverse of the 2022 Myths and Legends Phoenix Coins. This popular 2015 portrait was designed by Jody Clark of the Royal Mint. In it we see the Queen facing the right side and wearing both the Coronation Necklace and George IV State Diadem. The coin’s hallmarks are inscribed along the rim.
A phoenix is shown on the reverse of 2022 1 oz Silver Chinese Myths and Legends Phoenix Coins. In this design, we see the mythical bird in flight with a paulownia flower in its beak. Some believe that the paulownia tree is the only genus of tree species the phoenix will sit in. In the background, you will find various cloud designs. Inscriptions include a mintmark and designer Lucas Bower’s initials.
The phoenix is undoubtedly one of the most iconic birds in the history of mythology. Just take a cursory glance at popular culture over the years and you’ll find countless depictions of the phoenix, in everything from Harry Potter and Pokémon to Shakespeare and Mozart. In Chinese culture, these birds are important providers of positive chi. Most recently, the Chinese phoenix was seen in the 2020 film Mulan, where it appeared as a guide and symbol of hope for the story’s heroine.
