Known as the ‘maneki-neko’ in Japan, the ‘lucky cat’ or the ‘beckoning cat’ is a talisman believed to bring good luck to its owner. The cat will generally have its left or right paw raised with its palm facing down.
It is said a lucky cat with both paws raised will invite protection of the owner’s residence or place of business. Cats of a golden colour are believed to bring wealth and prosperity.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
