A couple of cranes, as in birds, are depicted on the Feng Shui – Cranes 1/4 oz gold coin. This is not strange, especially in Feng Shui, where cranes are often seen in artwork. The reason for this is because cranes are representative of immortality, energy and longevity in Feng Shui. Cranes were after all seen as the carriers of departed spirits in ancient Chinese folklore, where the ability to fly is seen as almost synonymous, if not synonymous, with the ability to serve as a messenger of heaven. A fitting attribute attached to the Prince of all birds, namely the crane, in Feng Shui.

The connection of the elephant to good fortune in Feng Shui is so strong, that the Chinese word to pronounce the word “elephant”, namely Xiàng, has a similar ring to it than the Chinese word for good fortune.
