Description

This design was inspired by my trip to Hong Kong where I bought a small figurine similar to this, having seen them at lots of temples before.

These Guardian Lions, also known as Foo Dogs, are often built in front of Palaces, Tombs and Temples and were believed to have mythical protective powers.

These lions are usually depicted in pairs, with a Male with his foot upon a ball (representing supremacy over the world ) and a female with a cub (representing nurture).

The coins that were made show the Male version and each of these coins are also engraved with limited edition numbers as they will not be reminted again.
