Canada 2015 Blessings of Prosperity Gold $150 Coin in boxAn Original Work of Art
The dramatic design by Canadian Asian artist Simon Ng confers upon the owner a blessing for prosperity. In the center of the image stands one of the 12 animals of the Chinese lunar zodiac, the ox. Long used in agriculture and for heavy tasks, this animal’s patience and hard work are believed to produce success. The bull or ox is also a spring emblem that represents a bountiful harvest for the year ahead, with an accumulation of wealth. Here, this auspicious symbol is an image of strength as it steadily moves along the landscape. The ox wears a belt of five coins, particularly fitting given that coins represent money (and thus, prosperity), while the number “5” is associated with blessings for a balanced life. To the left of the ox, the Chinese symbol conveys the blessing for a “prosperous” year ahead.
