2 oz Pure Silver Coin – Tokelau 2023 – 10 Dollars
For those who are familiar with the Chinese Zodiac, the Tai Sui (sometimes referred to as Grand Duke of Jupiter) is the personified deity of the stars opposite Jupiter who rules over all earthly matters in a specific lunar calendar. The Tai Sui changes every year during the Lunar New Year, as with the Zodiac. Typically, the Zodiac of the year would ‘clash’ with the Tai Sui, resulting in difficulties or setbacks through the year for those born under the same sign. As such, the auspicious dragon is intentionally paired with the Zodiac sign of the year in this series to attract success and luck for the particular Zodiac.
The rabbit is thought to be linked with a gentle nature and nobility. A celestial feature of the Lunar Calendar because it is one of the stages of the calendar cycles. Those born in the Year of the Rabbit are expected to be noble, kind, thoughtful, and gentle. When matched with the majestic dragon that symbolizes luck and auspicious connotations, this piece is a showcase of immense power and strength. Both creatures snarl and lunge fearlessly from the reverse, their surreal forms leaping away from the surface.
Measuring 80mm in diameter, this piece is double the size of the regular 2 oz collectible. This is made possible with a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Plus”, which combines 11.5 oz of copper within two layers of 999 fine silver totaling 2 oz. The result is an incredible weight and feel to match the regal Chinese Dragon and Rabbit detail, and ultra-high relief topped with silver antiqued finishing. This is a limited edition of 333 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
Upon completion, each of the limited 333 pieces are then imbued with the energy of the two animals. This is done by a reputable Feng Shui master from Singapore, Master Louis Cheung, who invites the energy of the powerful dragon and the agile rabbit into the collectible and amplifies their positive traits and auspicious energy for it to attract even more of such energy. Every piece has been blessed with wishes of wealth, fortune, and success for its future owners.
