Request information

As Chinese communities around the world celebrate Spring Festival (the Lunar New Year) on January 28th, this beautiful Lion Dance coin will usher in a hefty dose of good luck for 2017!

The Spring Festival (Chun-jie) is the most important celebration in Chinese culture. It's a critical time of rebirth in which the whole community comes together to seek blessings from heaven for a prosperous and harmonious year—a request that is symbolically carried out by the majestic lion.

In Canada, where almost 5% of the population is Chinese, throngs of people take to the streets to watch the lion dance. This ancient celebration is not difficult to find; one merely has to follow the sound of drums, cymbals and gongs that keep evil at bay as they enhance the performance. Lanterns and streamers fly overhead, and the air is charged with energy.
