About the Coin

In Chinese Tradition Koi are symbolic of unity and fidelity as it is noted that fish (particularly koi) often swim together in pairs. With this in mind, Koi are often given as wedding gifts in the form of charms or figurines to present the newly-wed couple with an au ious sign of fidelity and perfect union. They also represent fertility and abundance due to their ability to reproduce in speed and volume.
This unique pure .999 silver coin depicts the Koi fish and is limited to 8,000 coin sets only.

Reverse Design

Obverse Design

The Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, sovereign of the Commonwealth and Niue.

Packaging
