Evoking Chinese culture and traditions with its unique shape and beautiful koi fish design, this stunning 2 oz silver figure eight shaped coin is only the second of its kind ever struck by The Perth Mint.
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.
Koi fish are traditional symbols of perseverance, strength, ambition and good fortune and the coin’s stunning reverse design depicts two koi fish and a lotus flower.
