Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year, also known as the “Spring Festival” in modern China, is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. Celebrations traditionally run from the evening preceding the first day, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first calendar month. The first day of the New Year falls on the new moon between 21 Jan and 20 Feb. In 2017, the first day of the Chinese New Year was on Saturday, 28 January, initiating the year of the Rooster. The New Year festival is centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and customs. Traditionally, the festival was a time to honor deities as well as ancestors. Chinese New Year is celebrated in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations, including Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mauritius, Australia, and the Philippines. Chinese New Year is considered a major holiday for the Chinese and has had influence on the lunar new year celebrations of its geographic neighbors.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin features a dragon with a depiction of the flaming pearl. Dragons are often portrayed pursuing this metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment in fine art, and the imagery is recreated in the popular Chinese New Year dragon dances. These colourful and energetic performances, traditional representations of welcoming good fortune into a community, often include a performer holding a rod with a coloured sphere representing the pearl which is ‘chased’ by the dragon. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “QUEEN ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “TUVALU” – the issuing country, “1 DOLLAR” – the face value, “2019” – the issue year and “1oz 9999 Ag” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver.
