One of the most impressive relics of the ancient world is the Terracotta Army of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China as a unified kingdom. The terracotta statues that make up the Terracotta Army are a form of funerary art that was buried with the emperor upon his death in 210 or 209 BCE. The Scottsdale Mint issues a beautiful 5 oz silver coin in honor of the famed army. Provident Metals currently offers the 2018 Fiji Terracotta 5 oz Silver Coin for purchase online.
When you purchase a 2018 Fiji Terracotta 5 oz Silver Coin, you will receive your specimen inside of a drawstring cotton bag. All of the coins ship individually and come with a Certificate of Authenticity courtesy of the Scottsdale Mint. Each one has what the Scottsdale Mint calls a ruptured edge. In visual terms, this edge appears hammered or chiseled as though it were carved right out of a block of granite.
The obverse face of the 2018 Fiji Terracotta 5 oz Silver Coin comes with the image of the Fijian Coat of Arms. The national emblem of Fiji includes a quartered shield that bears native flora and fauna from Fiji. There is a lion in the passant guardant pose at the top of the shield, with a Polynesian canoe with outrigger above the shield. The sides of the shield are supported by native Fijians.
On the reverse side of the 2018 Fiji Terracotta 5 oz Silver Coin, you will find the image of stoic Terracotta Warriors standing in line ready to defend their emperor. The Terracotta Army was buried with the emperor in a massive complex to offer him protection in the afterlife. While there are many military units included in the Terracotta Army, the most numerous are the foot soldiers in the army of Qin Shi Huang. In total, there are more than 8,000 soldiers standing in line to defend their leader.
The Terracotta Army was buried with the emperor in 210-209 BCE, but it wasnt discovered until a farmer happened upon it in 1974. In all, the army contains 130 chariots with 520 horses and an additional 150 cavalry horses alongside the 8,000 warriors.
