2015 Canada $150 Blessings of Prosperity Pure Gold Coin (No Tax)

Filled with beautiful, thought-provoking symbolism, blessings have long been an important part of traditional Chinese culture around the world and in Chinese-Canadian communities. Along with good luck and longevity, ancient Chinese beliefs held that prosperity was one of life's greatest blessings and a cornerstone for the ideal life.

A blessing for prosperity-such as the one conferred by this coin on its owner-bestows upon the recipient a sincere wish for their success and fortune, and a greater hope for continued happiness.

In Chinese tradition and in Feng Shui, the ox is an agriculture-based emblem that symbolizes a bountiful harvest in the year ahead and an accumulation of wealth. Here, it is depicted in the centre of the coin's reverse image with a belt of five coins, along with the Chinese symbol for "prosperity" engraved in the upper left corner-all elements that are symbolic within this blessing of prosperity for the coming year, and many more to come.

About the Design:
The design by Canadian artist Simon Ng confers upon the owner a blessing for prosperity. In the centre of the image stands one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac: the ox. Long used in agriculture and for heavy tasks, this animal's patience and hard work are believed to result in success; it is also a spring emblem that represents a bountiful harvest for the year ahead, with an accumulation of wealth. Here, this auspicious symbol is an image of strength as it steadily moves along the landscape; its belt of five coins is particularly fitting given that coins represent money (and thus, prosperity), while the number "5" is associated with blessings for a balanced life. To the left of the ox, the Chinese symbol conveys the blessing for a "prosperous" year ahead.
