2017 $8 Fine Silver Coin - Lion Dance

Regular price $40.00
/

The Spring Festival (Chun-jie) is the most important celebration in Chinese culture during which throngs of people take to the streets to watch the lion dance. The energy and movement of the mythical lion is brought to life in this fine silver collectable coin.

Lunar New Year is a critical time of rebirth in which the whole community comes together to seek blessings from heaven for a prosperous and harmonious year. These requests are symbolically carried out by the majestic lion. The lion's head is inspired by the mythical dragon with a beard and pronounced forehead, often with a horn in the shape of a phoenix to symbolize life and re-birth. Additionally, the lion's ears and tail are from the Chinese unicorn to bring wisdom and luck; its spine represents the wealth and charm of the snake; while the bump on its head holds the longevity of a tortoise shell.

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
