2011 $150 Pure Gold Coin - Blessings of Happiness (TAX Exempt)

Blessings of Happiness.

Chinese culture expresses happiness through a multitude of ancient and vibrant symbols and traditions. Family and friends still actively bestow blessings of happiness upon each other.

The traditional lion dance is an energetic, colourful expression of joy and happiness. It is an ancient custom that still figures prominently during Chinese New Year celebrations or any joyous ceremony such as the opening of a new business or building, or during planting and harvesting seasons.

A lion dance would not be complete without firecrackers to usher out the old and bring in the new, and enhance the lion's roar to chase away evil spirits and enliven the celebration and good fortune. Let the happy times begin!
