Octagonal Good Fortune Gold Coins

Buy Octagonal Good Fortune Gold Coins, 8.88g, 99.99% Pure Gold In Proof Quality, Perth Mint Australia

Octagonal Good Fortune Gold Coin

Chinese culture is steeped in ancient lucky symbols. This stunning coin, which portrays several symbols of fortune and wealth, also reflects the auspiciousness of the number eight in traditional beliefs. The 2008 coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 8.88g of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality. The unusually-shaped coin has eight sides. The centre of the coin’s reverse portrays a stylised combination of Chinese characters with the literal meaning ‘bringing money and treasures’. A peony, the ‘flower of riches’, appears in colour at the top of the design, while eight yuan bao, small ingots used in ancient China as money, are shown below. Behind these design elements is a string of eight lucky coins. Long ago, their circular shape was said to represent Heaven, while their square hole symbolised Earth. Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin depicts the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination of $28 on the obverse. The coin is housed in a presentation display case featuring a granite-effect base and glossy timber lid. The case comes in an attractive, illustrated shipper with gold foiling. The Perth Mint will release no more that 2,008 of these ‘lucky’ coins. Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
