Widely recognized as the princes of feathered creatures, cranes are the perfect symbols for wedding gifts. Pairs of cranes are associated with harmony, longevity, and peace. This Wedding Cranes bar is perfect for couples getting married in 2019. The Perth Mint honors the Chinese custom of giving monetary wedding gifts in red envelopes with magnetically sealed red casing. The color represents good luck in Chinese culture. Struck from one ounce of .9999 fine gold at the Perth Mint, this bar bears that mint's "P" mint mark on the right side of the reverse. The bar remains in GEM Proof condition.
Romantic Cranes Design by Ing Ing Jong
At the center of the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II, which has graced Australian coinage for two decades. She faces right and wears a tiara on her head. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed at the top, while the date, "2019," is included at the bottom. Just above her portrait are inscriptions of the bar's country, "TUVALU," weight, "1 OZ," and purity, "9999 AG." Its face value, "1 DOLLAR," is provided below the portrait.
Ing Ing Jong's reverse design features a crane couple with their bodies oriented toward each other and their heads turned upward in song. They stand on a branch on which cherry blossoms, which represent love and romance, bloom. In the background is a stylized mist, while at the top are the Chinese characters for "double happiness."
