2015 Niue 1 Ounce Feng Shui Elephant Colored Silver Proof Coin
One of the largest and strongest land animals living on the planet today, Elephants radiate an energy of kindness and wisdom. In Feng Shui, the Elephant symbolizes protection, good fortune, wisdom, and strength. The Chinese pronunciation of Elephant is Xiàng which has a similar sound to the Chinese word for good fortune, or something that is auspicious. The Elephant therefore is suitable for all areas of life, representing your aspirations being granted at work, in your personal life, and in that of your household.
An Elephant's trunk has a complex language of its own. Being both sensitive and strong, Elephants use their trunks for a variety of purposes. These range from drinking water, to moving heavy objects and greeting friends. In traditional Feng Shui, Elephants are placed by a door with trunks held upward over their heads, symbolising that accumulated wealth and prosperity is being showered into the home. The Elephant is a sacred animal in Buddhism, and was often depicted in Indian mythology.
The Feng Shui Elephant 1 oz .999 Pure Silver Coin shows on the reverse two Elephants. One brings water into its trunk, representing the accumulation of wealth, while the other showers this over itself, signifying the distribution of prosperity, good fortune and peace throughout one’s life. The obverse shows the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, the the legal tender value, and year of 2014 at the bottom. This coin comes packaged inside a beautifully decorated lacquered grey 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.
