Description

Created under inspiration of the ancient heroic deeds, this coin displays one of
the most powerful warriors of ancient China, Lu Bu. This military general lived
in the times of Eastern Han dynasty, 2nd century AD. He is remembered by the
folk culture as unbeatable fighter. And as he was quite skilled in archery and
horse-riding, Lu Bu earned his nickname – «The Flying General».
The fight scene featuring Lu Bu and his rivals is portrayed with exceptional
accuracy on a relief surface of the 3 oz silver coin. This composition makes
allusion to traditional Chinese paintings, especially with highlighted background
created with combination of color printing and gold plating.
