The beneficent San Xing, or Three Stars, dwell auspiciously in Chinese homes and businesses around the world—and now they’re yours to cherish in this exclusive set.
This engraved and painted set includes three coins designed by artist Simon Ng. On the first coin, Fu Xing, god of blessings, gazes to the left, holding a baby and a scroll. The background is accented with images of bats—whose pronunciation sounds like blessings. On the second, Lu Xing, god of prosperity, gazes serenely at the viewer, holding a gold lantern and a jeweled staff. The background also features two stylized stag deer, whose pronunciation sounds like deer. The third coin features Shou Xing, god of longevity. He smiles toward the right side of the image, holding a peach in one hand and a cane in the other, with a crane in the background. The peach and the crane both symbolize longevity.
This set of three masterfully engraved and coloured large-format coins highlights the vibrancy of traditional Chinese culture! The striking images are designed to convey the gods’ dynamism, strength, and unique character.
