2013 Niue 1 Ounce Feng Shui Crane Colored Silver Proof Coin
Humans have always seen birds as symbols of inspiration and freedom. The ability to fly and to soar high up in the sky is closely associated in Feng Shui with the ability to serve as messengers from heaven. Birds are considered powerful symbols of new opportunities that are there for you, even in times of adversity. Their songs are inspirational in their beauty and complexity, which adds the primal power of sound to this Feng Shui symbol.
Reverse: This delightful coin shows two Cranes captured against a mirror finish, proof quality background with one bird looking upwards, symbolizing authority and wisdom. As in traditional Chinese paintings, these cranes are surrounded by reeds and pine tree branches representing constant friendship. Both Cranes are also shown in the wild, illustrating their freedom and endless opportunity to develop.
Obverse: The coin’s obverse features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Feng Shui Cranes are packaged inside a beautifully decorated lacquered red wooden box, which sits inside an outer box featuring an ancient ornate Chinese-style design. When the inner packaging is opened, the 1 oz coin and Certificate of Authenticity are displayed.
