Figure Eight Koi Fish 2019 2oz Silver Antiqued Coin
Celebrate Chinese symbols of luck and wealth with this figure eight-shaped coin. The number eight is the luckiest number in Chinese culture thanks to it having similar pronunciation to 发, which means good fortune or to prosper. Uniquely symmetrical, when laid on its side the coin resembles the mathematical symbol for infinity – an important principle in feng shui used to denote everlasting wealth, happiness, love and abundance.
- 99.99% pure silver
- Innovative figure eight design
- Australian legal tender
Combining symbols of luck, prosperity, ambition and wealth, this innovative coin is a fitting tribute to Chinese culture and traditions. Thanks to their ability to swim upstream, koi fish have long represented perseverance and strength of purpose in eastern cultures. As such they have become a symbol of good luck, abundance, courage, independence and ambition. The number eight is also considered extremely lucky as the Chinese word for ‘eight’ sounds similar to ‘good fortune’ or ‘money’.
Antiqued finished design
The coin’s reverse features two koi fish swimming against the currents and a lotus flower. The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark also appears in the design.
Each coin in the mintage has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin may vary.
The coin is presented in a clear acrylic display case, allowing both the obverse and reverse designs to be displayed, and is packaged within an illustrated shipper. The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
