In traditional Chinese culture, Fu, Lu and Shou represent the gods of three  auspicious heavenly bodies. Collectively known as Sanxing, or Three Stars, their  human forms have been portrayed by artists since the Ming Dynasty in a variety  of media, including paintings, stone, porcelain and woodblock prints celebrating  New Year. Prominently displayed in many homes, from the Imperial Palace to the  peasant’s hut, the figures embody attributes considered essential to personal  happiness – prosperity, success and longevity. 

 

DESIGN 

The coin portrays coloured images of Fu, Lu and Shou surrounding a yin yang  symbol. 

- Embodying prosperity, Fu is represented as a learned man holding a baby.  The artistry includes peonies, a symbol of wealth, and the Chinese  character for ‘Fu’. 

- Embodying success, Lu is represented as a mandarin. The artistry includes  a ruyi, his ceremonial scepter, a boat-shaped gold ingot known as a syce,  and the Chinese character for ‘Lu’. 

- Embodying longevity, Shou is a wise old man with a high forehead. The  artistry includes his crooked staff, the peach of immortality, and the  Chinese character for ‘Shou’. 

The detailed reverse includes an intricate background composition comprising  many motifs auspicious in Chinese culture, including bats, clouds, gourds, deer and  cranes. 

The Ian Rank-Broadley of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary  denomination, the weight and fineness, and the 2021 year-date are shown on the  coin’s obverse. 

No more than 388 of the 2021 Fu Lu Shou 5oz Silver Coloured Antiqued Coin will  be released.
