2012 Niue 1 Ounce Feng Shui Koi Colored Silver Proof Coin Set
In Chinese Tradition Koi are symbolic of unity and fidelity as it is noted that fish (particularly koi) often swim together in pairs. With this in mind, Koi are often given as wedding gifts in the form of charms or figurines to present the newly-wed couple with an encouraging sign of fidelity and perfect union. They also represent fertility and abundance due to their ability to reproduce in speed and volume.
Reverse: This features an image of 2 Koi swimming. Background is delicate Cherry Blossoms.
