Dance for joy.
The lion dance is an energetic and colourful custom that dates back to ancient China. To this day, it still figures prominently during Chinese New Year celebrations or any joyous ceremony, such as the opening of a new business or building, or during planting and harvesting periods.

Firecrackers often accompany the lions as they dance about in order to enhance the lion’s roar and chase away evil spirits. Firecrackers usher out the old and bring in the new; they maximize the celebration and good fortune.

It is common for family and friends to actively bestow blessings of happiness upon each other—an uplifting and joyous message that is beautifully expressed by this exquisite scallop-shaped gold coin.
