Happiness soars with ancient Chinese symbols.
The magpie on this coin is one of China’s most common and powerful symbols of happiness. Its name (xi que) translates directly to “the bird of happiness”. In fact, the decorations at Chinese weddings will often feature two magpies to wish “double happiness” for the bride and groom.
The lotus flower that creates the background on this coin is another visual and auditory symbol for happiness. Its name (lian) sounds identical to the word “continuous”. Combining the magpie with lotus flowers is a poignant way to express a wish for prolonged happiness, luck and success.
