At the heart of this 1oz silver coin sits an insert carved from jade, a stone traditionally symbolising beauty, purity and virtue in Chinese culture. It is sculpted into a representation of the Laughing Buddha, a Buddhist figure frequently represented in statues believed to bring good luck and fortune. He is portrayed atop a mound of coins on the reverse of this stunning antiqued coin in reference to his association with prosperity and abundance.
The coin’s reverse depicts the legendary Laughing Buddha sitting atop a mound of coins against a background of stylised rays of sunlight. The inscription ‘LAUGHING BUDDHA’, a patterned border and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also included in the design.
The coin is housed in a contemporary latex case which displays both sides of the coin. Packaged within an illustrated shipper, the coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
