2 oz Pure Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2021 – 10000 Francs CFA
Cai Shen (财神), or the God of Wealth, is a popular mythological figure who is worshipped in Chinese culture. Legend has it that in ancient China, the God of Wealth was appointed to ensure the distribution of wealth and good fortune amongst the people. It is thus the tradition of many Chinese to welcome the God of Wealth into their homes and businesses especially during Chinese New Year, as he is believed to bring good luck and wealth by attracting windfall and prosperity. For those who practice Feng Shui, displaying the God of Wealth at specific placements would welcome auspicious energy and luck into their homes and offices.
This God of Wealth collectible makes for the perfect present, delivering well wishes of success and wealth to the recipient. Dressed in his elaborate robe and holding a tall stack of ingots and the Ru Yi scepter in hand, the deity is an image of good fortune and auspicious energy. On the obverse, the Chinese characters 招財進寶 (loosely translated to mean ‘Attract Wealth and Treasures’) are etched artistically with strokes inspired by Chinese calligraphy. At 3.3cm in width and 8cm in height, his blissful expression radiates joy from one’s palm, symbolic of how the God of Wealth is sure to bless and shine on its keeper with success and riches, making it a befitting gift for occasions.
This piece is crafted with 2 oz of 999 pure silver that is die-cut with precision to the shape of the God of Wealth, with its details engraved in high relief to finish. Available in 2 different finishings, antiqued Gold and antiqued Silver.
