Flower’s Power

2 posts in this topic



"Flowers have symbolic meanings in Chinese culture and coins represent these qualities. The simple beauty of Chrysanthemum flowers conveys the virtues of humility and longevity. This flower appears on the circulating copper-nickel one Yuan coin and the fractional one Jaio. The lotus, a symbol of nobility and purity, adorns the brass five Jiao coin."

Best wishes,

Is rarity considered a virtue as well in Chinese Culture ? Just a bit curious, as I mostly see Pandas other than anything else on modern Chinese coins/medals.
