Description

This stunning 2013 $150 scallop-edged pure gold coin celebrates the strong and vibrant Chinese communities of Canada, the unique heritage of Chinese Canadians, and the unique customs of this ancient culture—while conferring on its owner a powerful blessing of peace. It is the fifth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s lotus-shaped coin series celebrating the history and traditions of Canada’s Chinese communities. Mintage is limited to 888 coins. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

The reverse image features Canadian artist Aries Cheung’s striking phoenix and auspicious clouds design. Around a circular “sun” bearing the Chinese symbols for “peace,” the reverse image features a stylized phoenix rendered in breathtaking detail. The bird’s pheasant visage and sharp parrot bill are viewed in striking profile, facing the left side of the coin. The phoenix raises its right swallow wing above its head while its left wing folds delicately beneath its duck-like body. Each feather is executed with deft skill to enhance the design’s depth and beauty. Three graceful peacock tailfeathers flow out from behind the bird, filling the right side of the reverse’s central field. Above the phoenix is a stylized sky filled with swirling peony-like clouds.
