Chinese-Canadian culture is rich in history and symbolism, and this striking coin was created in tribute to that cultural heritage. This item, extending a blessing of longevity upon its owner, is presented in a third of an ounce of pure gold, with a proof finish and a unique scalloped-edge.
This piece is part of a renowned series of Asian-inspired coins from the Royal Canadian Mint. The heart-warming blessing of longevity is conveyed via an illustration of two elegant cranes side-by-side. In Chinese folklore, cranes are symbolically connected with the idea of immortality; for this reason, they are an icon of longevity. By that token, the pine tree they stand next to is also a symbol of resilience and endurance, as the nature of the tree allows for it to withstand the harshest of winters without losing its needles. Exceptional artistry, a highly-desirable 99.999% pure gold value, and a limited mintage of 888 coins (8 is considered the luckiest number in Chinese mysticism) come together in this coin to create a collectable worthy of a true heirloom collection.
This coin is part of a popular Asian-inspired series from the Royal Canadian Mint.
