A Perth Mint first, this innovative 1oz silver coin features a Laughing Buddha insert made of jade, a stone traditionally symbolising beauty, purity and virtue in Chinese culture.
The laughing Buddha is a Buddhist figure frequently represented in statues believed to bring good luck and fortune.
He is portrayed atop a mound of coins on the reverse of this stunning antiqued coin in reference to his association with prosperity and abundance.
Struck by The Perth mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as Tuvalu legal tender.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the Laughing Buddha 1oz Silver Antiqued Coin.
The coin’s reverse depicts the legendary figure sitting atop a mound of coins against a background of stylised rays of sunlight.
*Please note, the colour of the jade will vary.
The coin is housed in a contemporary latex case which displays both sides of the coin, and is accompanied by an illustrated shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity
