Product Description

Five little bats are good luck charms that bring health, wealth and good fortune on this outrageously auspicious and low mintage (only 6,888) pure silver proof with a square hole in the middle! Get yours today!

This coin features one of the most popular good luck motifs found in old Chinese houses — five little bats surrounding the Chinese symbol shou (longevity) to bring five cherished blessings of health, wealth, longevity, virtue, and a peaceful natural death in old age. It’s inspired by a visual pun in which the character for bat (fu) and good fortune or happiness (fu), are pronounced the same way. Together on this 99.99% pure gold square holed coin, they bring an abundance of blessings! With a limited mintage of just 6,888 the sky's the limit for the Five Blessings Square Hole Pure Silver Proof!

The elegant obverse design by Canadian artist Simon Ng features a combination of Chinese motifs representing the auspicious “Five Blessings”; consisting of five bats surrounding the Chinese character shou (longevity), each bat representing health, wealth, longevity, virtue and a peaceful natural death in old age. The square hole in the center is a distinct feature of ancient Chinese coins which represents the land. It’s framed by a circle of finely engraved scrolls and symbolic floral elements, while traditional Chinese latticework flows along the outer edge of the coin design. The floral elements also compliment the ornate scrollwork on the coin’s unique reverse, where the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is engraved with remarkable finesse in a smoothly polished circle above the square hole.
