2014 Canada $150 Blessings of Longevity Pure Gold (No Tax)

The Royal Canadian Mint proudly celebrates Canada's Chinese communities by paying tribute to its ancient culture and traditions with this scalloped-edge 99.999% pure gold coin, which bestows upon its owner a sincere blessing for a long life.

Designed by Canadian artist Charles Vinh, the reverse image is reminiscent of traditional Chinese papercuts and centres on two cranes as they stand poised on a pine tree branch. A side profile of these revered birds perfectly showcase the sharp contrast between their white primary feathers and their black neck, as well as the darker wing and tail feathers that flow down behind them. The pair is turned towards the left, which features the Chinese symbol for "longevity." The pine tree that fills the lower and top portion of the image field further strengthens the image's message, which bestows upon the owner a blessing "to live as long as the pine and crane."

- This $150 coin is the sixth in the Royal Canadian Mint's renowned series of Asian-inspired coins, and features a unique lotus-shaped scalloped edge.
- Made of 99.999% pure gold coin, the highest purity unique to the Royal Canadian Mint.
- Very low mintage of only 888 coins - a number that is symbolic since the number "8" is considered the luckiest of numbers in Chinese tradition.
- In Chinese arts, cranes are usually illustrated with the pine tree which is resilient - never bare even during the coldest of winters. Together this makes a revered symbol of a long life, as well as one of strength and endurance.
