Yin Yang
In a nutshell, Chinese Yin Yang symbols represent perfect balance. Seemingly, the whole of Chinese philosophy stems from the concept of Yin and Yang - opposites interacting and supposedly the seed of all things. For example, evil results from an imbalance in Yin and Yang, and good comes from the two being in harmonic balance. To aid in understanding the properties belonging to each side of the symbol, I have included the following table. Each property is beneath its corresponding Yin or Yan energy. The meaning of the characters for yin and yang, has more than just one connotation. Basically interpreted, yang means “sunny”, so it corresponds to the day and more active functions. Whereas yin, means “shady”, and corresponds to night and less active functions.

The coin's reverse depicts the five Chinese elements of wood, fire, earth, metal, and water surrounding a stainless steel, enamel plated yin yang rotating charm, which represents the continual flow of the five elements as they exist in nature. The design includes the inscriptions: “Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal And Water”, as well as the Chinese symbols for each of the five elements and the Perth Mint’s traditional “P” mintmark. The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “2016” – the issue year, “1 Dollar” - the monetary denomination and “Tuvalu” – the issue country, along with a yin yang pattern surrounding the rotating charm.
