A magnificent example of The Perth Mint’s innovative artistry, this antiqued coin showcases a genuine yellow topaz encircled by an intricate design featuring eight koi fish. The yellow topaz charm which, being the colour of the sun, has traditionally been associated with good fortune and energy. In Chinese culture koi fish have for centuries represented courage and perseverance due to their ability to swim upstream, while eight is regarded as the luckiest number.
Each coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver.
The reverse of the coin features eight koi fish swimming beneath peonies and encircling a rotating yellow topaz charm. With their ability to swim upstream, koi represent perseverance, strength and ambition, while eight is considered the most propitious number in Chinese culture.

Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin’s obverse shows Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date and the monetary denomination.
