The Chinese symbol on the right of the coin is one of many used to offer these wishes for good fortune.  Mintage is limited to 8,500.  As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.

The Design:

This coin features a series of symbolic images representing the traditional Five Blessings of Chinese culture. In a polished crescent on the left side of the coin appear five animals that traditionally connote blessings, including a bat for happiness, a deer for career success, a crane for long life, and two magpies for joy. The right side of the coin is richly decorated with circular imagery overlaid with the Chinese symbol used to offer a wish for good fortune.
