2019 2oz Silver Antiqued Coin - Figure Eight Koi Fish
Evoking Chinese culture and traditions with its unique shape and beautiful koi fish design, this stunning 2oz silver figure eight shaped coin is only the second of its kind ever struck by The Perth Mint.
The number eight is the luckiest number in Chinese culture thanks to it having similar pronunciation to ?, which means good fortune or to prosper.
Uniquely symmetrical, when laid on its side the coin resembles the mathematical symbol for infinity – an important principle in feng shui used to denote everlasting wealth, happiness, love and abundance. Koi fish are traditional symbols of perseverance, strength, ambition and good fortune and the coin’s stunning reverse design depicts two koi fish and a lotus flower.
Shaped like a figure eight, this unique 2oz coin features two koi fish swimming against the currents, and a lotus flower. The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark also appears in the design. The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, the weight and fineness, and the 2019 year-date are shown on the coin’s obverse. A pattern of infinity symbols surrounds each circle in the figure eight design.
The coin is presented in a clear acrylic case, allowing both sides of the coin to be displayed, and is packaged within an illustrated shipper. The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
