The Meaning Behind the Coin
This is a Chinese Zodiac Gold Coin that focuses on a particular aspect of Chinese culture – it boasts one of the most popular good luck motifs traditionally found in old Chinese houses. The motif incorporates five bats surrounding the Chinese word/character “shou” (meaning longevity) in order to bring five cherished blessings of virtue, longevity, health, wealth and a peaceful natural death in old age. Visually speaking, the motif is inspired by a pun in which the character for happiness or good fortune (fu) and character for bat (fu) are pronounced the same way. These characters combine to bring an abundance of blessings on this 99.99% pure gold coin.
