A beautiful wedding gift, this coin features a pair of Mandarin ducks which have long been a symbol of enduring love in Chinese culture. Figurines of the iconic birds are often given to brides on their wedding day to impart blessings of a happy marriage, romance, devotion and enduring love.
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.
Figurines or other gifts portraying Mandarin ducks have for centuries been given to express best wishes to happy couples. The coin's reverse depicts a pair of the iconic birds swimming on a pond, along with the Chinese character for double happiness and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
Issued as Tuvalu legal tender, the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
Red packets containing money are a traditional wedding gift for Chinese couples and the presentation packaging for this coin honours this ancient custom. The intricate cover is designed as a magnetically sealed case featuring finely cut-out flowers in red, the colour symbolising good luck in Chinese culture, and the Chinese character for double happiness. The case opens to reveal an inset shipper housing the coin and the numbered Certificate of Authenticity, which is held in place by red ribbon.
