The Design:

The elephant’s coiled trunk reflects longevity; a chrysanthemum in its ear depicts ease and good fortune.  Engraved under the elephant’s belly are Chinese characters for “peace”. Each type of flower on this coin blooms at different times in a year, as such this coins’ motif is designed to extend a blessing of peace throughout the entire year. 

Hope for long-term peace and good fortune are important markers of Chinese culture—and have helped to build strong and vibrant Chinese communities across Canada. This coin celebrates their heritage by focusing on the great Chinese blessing of peace.
