Design

This engraved and painted set includes three coins. On the first coin, Fu Xing, god of blessings, gazes to the left, holding a baby and a scroll. The background is accented with images of bats—whose pronunciation sounds like blessings. On the second, Lu Xing, god of prosperity, gazes serenely at the viewer, holding a gold lantern and a jeweled staff. The background also features two stylized stag deer, whose pronunciation sounds like deer. The third coin features Shou Xing, god of longevity. He smiles toward the right side of the image, holding a peach in one hand and a cane in the other, with a crane in the background. The peach and the crane both symbolize longevity.
The San Xing (Three Stars) embody the key elements of a happy life in Chinese tradition: blessings, prosperity, and long life. Traditionally displayed together, Fu Xing, Lu Xing, and Shou Xing were first personified during the Ming Dynasty (14thcentury) but hearken back to a much older tradition of associations with the constellation Shen, the 21st of the 28 lunar mansions of Chinese astronomy. This trio of stars is known as Orion's Belt in the western astronomical tradition.
