The energy of children has always held strong appeal amongst the Chinese. Images of chubby infants, especially those holding lucky Feng Shui signs have always been used to adorn homes and shops in China to emanate positive and happy energies.
These images embody the ideals of happiness, wealth, and health as well as good descendant luck. So decorating them in the home or carrying them in the form of an amulet expresses the wish for all these good fortunes because it is believed to generate the pure Yang energy of innocent bay boys that is so valuable in attracting all of them. These images of baby boys are often depicted wearing protective charms around their necks, holding lucky symbols, and surrounded by other auspicious objects around them as much as the space allowed. Those shown holding carps are generally highly regarded as carps signify abundance and wealth and are said to produce an endless source of money. The joyous combination of a baby boy and a big and fat fish as depicted in this amulet, therefore, means the growth of wealth from year to year as well as good fertility and good infant luck.
The back of the coin is stamped with Wealth Inviting characters. Further enhanced with an oriental mystic knot, this auspicious amulet is suitable for both men and women.
