In Chinese mythological history, few have been fortunate enough to see a phoenix, yet those who have been blessed with good fortune. This crimson feathered bird possibly has its origins in the writings of historian Herodotus, who claims to have spotted one in Egypt over 2000 years ago. Since then, the bird has become a significant mythic creature in both Western and Eastern culture.

The phoenix has been present in the myths of China for centuries and remains a popular and even sacred part of the culture to this day. Statues of the phoenix are common in public as well as in homes for those who practice the art of feng shui. The phoenix, known as Fenghuang in China, is believed to be a purely positive creature, a benevolent bird whose appearance brings prosperity and fortune.
On the obverse field of 2022 1 oz Silver Chinese Myths and Legends Phoenix Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II.
