Year of the Rooster Gold Gift Money from the Postal Savings Bank of China (PSBC) and the Imperial Palace of Beijing went on sale on November 28 in Beijing, the first in a series that will continue for 12 consecutive years.

A full set of Gold Gift Money includes five gourd shaped gold coins weighing 0.2 gram that imply happiness and richness. The gift money also has a large number of auspicious symbols printed on the surface.

The obverse side has handwriting of the Emperor Qianlong from the Qing Dynasty (A.D.1711-1799) saying Big Fortune and Great Profit" with auspicious clouds below. The reverse side has five phrases about good luck written by Emperor Kangxi of Qing Dynasty (A.D.1654-1722), Emperor Yongzheng of the Qing Dynasty (A.D.1678-1735), Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (A.D.1711-1799), Emperor Jiaqing of the Qing Dynasty (A.D. 1760-1820) and Emperor Daoguang of the Qing Dynasty (A.D.1782-1850) with Mountain of Fortune and Sea of Longevity decorative pattern printed below.

The main patterns were taken from golden pheasants on the togas of ancient civil officials who blessed children with bright prospects. The cockscomb, chrysanthemum, plum, lotus and jasmine on the gold gift money represent civil, martial, courageous, kindhearted and honest virtues, which places great expectation on kids.

Using laser printing and AR (augmented reality) technologies, patterns on the gift money can reflect light changes depending on the angle so that the whole image looks bright and colorful. Kids are able to interact with a little emperor and empress through AR technology when they receive the blessings, providing much fun on New Year's Day.
