Like a door adorned with traditional Fai Chun paper decorations, the reverse design by Canadian artist Aries Cheung offers a festive greeting and a wish for luck and fortune throughout the year. Two vertical Chiuntao banners and the diamond-shaped Doufang at the centre are brought to life by a deep red colour application and the use of translucent colour, which mimics the look of traditional gold foil. Together, these rich colours magnify the symbolic meaning of the calligraphic characters for "good wishes" (right), "auspiciousness" (left) and "good luck" or "fortune" (centre). This powerful blessing is further enhanced by various symbolic images, including a jade "ru yi" (right); an "auspicious" tangerine (left); and a repeating motif of a stylized bat or fú, which is homophonous with the word it surrounds. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Feature
  • TRADITION MEETS INNOVATION: Introducing our first rectangular-shaped celebration of Chinese-Canadian culture
  • SUPERB COLOURS: Another auspicious element, the rich red colour easily catches the eye, while translucent colour mimics the traditional gold foil of the calligraphic symbols.
  • HONOURING OUR CHINESE-CANADIAN COMMUNITIES: This visually stunning coin is a proud cultural celebration of Canada's Chinese communities.
