Description
 
This coin features one of the most popular good luck motifs found in old Chinese houses – five bats surrounding the Chinese character shou (longevity) to bring five cherished blessings of health, wealth, longevity, virtue, and a peaceful natural death in old age. It’s inspired by a visual pun in which the character for bat (fu) and good fortune or happiness (fu), are pronounced the same way, together on this 99.99% fine silver holed coin, they bring an abundance of blessings.
