The five coins invoke the five “Emperors of the Universe” for protection against danger and harm as well as to attract wealth & luck. Five emperors refer to the most powerful emperors in ancient China, namely:
- Shunzhi (順治)
- Kangxi (康熙)
- Yongzheng (雍正)
- Qianlong (乾隆)
- Jiaqing (嘉庆).
During their reign, China was prosperous, and people lived and worked in peace. The coins during their reign were well made and circulated for a long time. The five coins also signify the five feng shui elements (metal, wood, water, fire and earth) for a balanced and harmonious life.
