Maneki-Neko
The maneki-neko is a common Japanese figurine (lucky charm, talisman) which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. In modern times, they are usually made of ceramic or plastic. The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed in—often at the entrance of—shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, and other businesses. Some of the sculptures are electric or battery-powered and have a slow-moving paw beckoning. Maneki-neko comes in different colors, styles and degrees of ornateness. Common colors are white, black, gold and sometimes red. In addition to ceramic figurines, maneki-neko can be found as keychains, piggy banks, air fresheners, house-plant pots, and miscellaneous ornaments, as well as large statues. It is also sometimes called the “Chinese lucky cat” due to its popularity among Chinese merchants.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin depicts a golden lucky cat with both paws raised surrounded by representations of ancient Chinese coins and a gold ingot with an inscription of the Chinese character for “good fortune”. The design also includes the Chinese characters for “ushering in wealth and prosperity” and The Perth Mint’s traditional “P” mintmark. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “TUVALU” – the issuing country, “1oz 9999 Ag” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver, “1 DOLLAR” – the face value and “2019” – the issue year.
