Exchanging gifts on the occasion of the Chinese New Year is one of the most popular traditions of the Asian world. People especially like to give money or a present in the shape of the animal to which the new year is dedicated. But what they like even more are gifts that combine both features, i.e. commemorative coins and banknotes depicting an ox as the year starting on 12 February 2021 stands under the sign of this animal.
Since 2019, which was the beginning of the Year of the Pig, the CIT Coin Invest Lunar Collection has consisted of three products: A banknote, a small gold coin and the popular small sculpture, which can stand upright and which sells out in no time every year. That’s no surprise – these incredible 1,000 togrog commemorative coins are a perfect eye-catcher. The ox is the ideal gift for anyone born in 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997 or 2009. The best place for it might be a desk because the ox – at least that’s how its personality structure is commonly characterised – takes great pleasure in fulfilling its daily duties.
