Each 2022 888 Gram Silver Fiji Chinese Panda Lucky 8 Shaped Coin is available with a custom, protective capsule around the coin. The coin and its capsule are housed in a wooden bamboo box with a green-felt lining to protect the specimen. The coins are individually numbered and shaped like the number 8, the luckiest number in Chinese culture. The coins also have proof-like visuals with frosted designs and mirror-like fields.
The number 8 is considered lucky in China for a number of reasons. One of the primary reasons for its association with luck is its pronunciation. The number 8 is pronounced Ba in Chinese and sounds very similar to Fa, the word for wealth or fortune.
The obverse of 2022 888 Gram Silver Panda Lucky 8 Shaped Coins features the national coat of arms of Fiji. The design shows the coat of arms at the cross of the two circles that form the 8 shape. The national seal includes a shield that is quartered by the St. Andrew’s Cross and comes with symbols of Fijian culture in each quadrant. The identifying hallmarks of the coin are inscribed on this side with the individual serial number at the bottom.
On the reverse of 2022 Silver Fiji Chinese Panda Lucky 8 Shaped Coins are various pandas. The Giant Panda is a bear species that is native to the central highlands of China. With black-and-white patches of fur, there is no mistaking the panda for any other species of bear.
