When utilized by humans, coins are an emblem of the harmony of the ‘Heaven-Earth-Man’.
For many centuries, Chinese coins have been a very desirable symbol, signifying prosperity and owning many riches. The Chinese coin itself has an interesting design and depiction; because it is round, with a square-shaped hole in the center, it is said to be a representation of earth surrounded by heaven. It is for this reason that, when utilized by humans, they are an emblem of the harmony of the “Heaven-Earth-Man”.
The coin has two sides; The Yang side, which boasts the four Chinese signs of the emperor’s reign, and the Yin side, which features 2 characters. The coins are often held on red or gold string, according to auspicious Chinese numbers, each having its own meaning: three (the harmony of heaven, earth and humankind), six (symbolism of heaven luck) or nine (the entirety of the universe).
The five coins invoke the five “Emperors of the Universe” for protection against danger and harm as well as to attract wealth luck. The five coins also signify the five feng shui elements (metal, wood, water, fire and earth) for a balanced and harmonious life. The coins are tied in a red string and a mystic knot to empower its energy.
