A Token of Good Fortune

This lucky Proof gold coin from the Royal Canadian Mint to bestows wishes of luck and good fortune.

Five bats representing health, wealth, longevity, virtue and a peaceful natural death surround the Chinese character shou, meaning longevity. 

But why bats? Well, it's a kind of visual pun. The character fu, meaning bat, is pronounced in the same way as fu meaning happiness and good fortune. 

This 99.99% gold coin's shape and design is deeply symbolic for a variety of reasons. Firstly, it keeps with tradition. Ancient Chinese coins were struck with holes in the centre partly as a way to make them easier to transport (via string).

This square hole also signifies the land, whilst its round shape signifies heaven.

The reverse features intricate patterns and floral elements, as well as traditional Chinese latticework.

This coin is extremely limited, with just 388 available worldwide (again, a lucky bit of symbolism, as the number 8 is considered to be the most auspicious in Chinese culture). 

Your lucky gold coin is housed in traditional presentation packaging from the Royal Canadian Mint.

Whether a personal token or a gift for a loved one, there's no better way to bring a little good fortune into your life.
