Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This fantastic lotus-shaped, scalloped-edge coin is crafted in 99.999% pure gold in recognition of the rich cultural heritage of Chinese-Canadians, and is part of a series of Asian-inspired coins launched by the Royal Canadian Mint. This splendid coin bestows a blessing of longevity (a blessing that is widely appreciated in Chinese culture) on the bearer. The heart-warming message is conveyed with an illustration of two elegant cranes side-by-side. In Chinese folklore, cranes are symbolically connected with the idea of immortality; naturally, this is an appropriate symbol for longevity. In addition, the cranes stand near a pine tree, which is a symbol of resilience and endurance, as their nature allows them to thrive in the coldest, longest winters. The mintage of this coin has been limited to 888 coins worldwide, since the number 8 is considered the luckiest of numbers in the Chinese tradition! It is struck in one third of an ounce of pure gold with a proof finish that gives extraordinary depth to this highly-detailed image. This unique piece is sure to be appreciated by whomever you bestow this blessing of longevity upon.
