The Provident Lunar Series is an exclusive collection of lunar-themed designs with a twist on the images that make our lunar collections stand out visually from other lunar collections. While 2021 is officially known as the Year of the Ox, at Provident Metals, our lunar series offers a powerful vision for the Year of the Bull. Today, you have the chance to buy 10 oz Silver 2021 Year of the Bull Bars online at Provident Metals.
The Chinese Lunar Calendar, or Zodiac, follows a 12-year cycle with one animal assigned to each of those years. According to the primary origin story in Chinese mythology, the animals were assigned a position in the Zodiac based on their arrival at a meeting with the Jade Emperor. 12 animals answer the call of the Jade Emperor. Were it not for the craft of the mouse, the ox would have been first. The mouse hitched a ride on the ox to cross an impassable river, at least to its small frame, and then leaped off the ox to cross the finish line ahead of the ox.
On the obverse side of 10 oz Silver 2021 Year of the Bull Bars, you will find the front half of a bull ox. This unique version of a Year of the Ox design captures the might of the ox that made it a favored draft animal for thousands of years in agricultural societies. The powerful bull has the strength to get the job done, with the focus and determination to work reliably day after day. In this design, the bull has a fearsome gaze with its front left leg raised, creating a sense of unease that it may charge at any moment and use its muscular frame to level some damage with its horns. Above the head of the bull are inscriptions of Year of the Bull and the Chinese symbol for an ox.
The reverse field of the 10 oz Silver 2021 Year of the Bull Bar has a distinctive design created just for Provident Metals as well. The ornate design field has repeating design elements throughout the background, with the Provident Metals logo at the heart of the design field.
The powerful ox was first harnessed by human civilizations in 4000 BCE to work in agricultural settings. The animal was prized in Chinese and other civilizations as a hard, diligent, reliable worker. In Chinese culture, those characteristics are said to transfer to those born under its sign. Those born in the Year of the Bull are said to be honest, earnest individuals who will work hard and never seek praise for doing so.
10 oz Silver 2021 Year of the Bull Bars are available to you brand new from the mint with a beautiful, smooth finish. The bars are housed individually in sealed plastic sleeves or in boxes for multiples of 50.
