The Meaning of the Sealed Coin: A coin with an key motif is sealed inside the Rook. It is a lucky charm that unlocks the door to happiness. A key guards the entrance to a house, and as it opens doors, it symbolizes the health and prosperity of a family's home. A key may also serve as a precious charm, unlocking the heart of one's beloved.
The Meaning Behind a Coin: In the US finding a one cent coin - or "lucky penny" - is believed to bring good luck. Meanwhile, many Europeans customarily give religious coins or tokens to people they love. The coin is perceived as a symbol of fortune, and is given with the wishes that it will bring luck and prosperity to the recipient.
Hanayama Cast Chess Puzzles are recommended for ages 8 and up.
