The Chinese Lucky Cash Coin

Celebrate the Chinese New Year with a coin that many believe will bring good luck and prosperity for the year ahead.

Issued in China since 221 BCE, the unusual shaped Lucky Chinese Cash Coin features a square hole at its centre to represent Earth, while the circle symbolises heaven. This combination of heaven and earth make the coin a symbol of harmony and prosperity.

Chinese fortune-tellers would use cash coins, a tortoise shell, and their skill at numerology to tell the future. Because of their association with mystical prediction, these coins from China are thought to bring good luck.

Each coin comes housed in a wallet with informative Certificate of Authenticity detailing the history of the coin.
