Description & Design
This extraordinary silver coin features original artistry in an impressive design depicting the 12 animals in the Chinese lunar calendar. Portrayed in year order, the animals encircle a traditional Taoist symbol known as a bagua, a phenomenal representation of an important Chinese cultural tradition, the coin is "antiqued" by hand to add deep tone with a unique grained effect for an aged appearance.
Lunar Coin Design
The coin’s reverse depicts the heads of the 12 animals of the zodiac in year order encircling a central bagua, a motif incorporating Taoist trigrams, or symbols comprising three lines. Each trigram represents one of eight fundamental elements or concepts: heaven/sky, lake, fire, thunder, wind, water, mountain or earth. Within these is the yin yang symbol denoting universal balance. A pattern encloses the central bagua and stylized clouds decorate the outer rim of the coin.
Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate of Authenticity
Each coin is housed in a classic black display case within a themed shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
