Talisman: Chinese Coin

 

The coin is one of the "Eight Treasures".  Chinese coins are a potent symbol of wealth and prosperity.

Ancient Chinese coins are round with a square hole in the middle which reflects the Chinese view of the earth as square and the heavens as a circle.

A coin (qian 钱) can be a visual pun for "before your eyes" because the hole in the center is called an "eye" and the coin (qian) has the same pronunciation as the word "before" (qian 前).
