The “beckoning cat”, or more widely known as the Fortune Cat, is believed to bring good luck and fortune to its owner. Raising its left paw signifies a welcoming gesture that attract customers, thus symbolizing the blessings for a successful business.
The reverse side of the coin features “福” (meaning blessing) in different languages – Japanese and Chinese (福), Korean (복), English (Blessing) and Spanish (Bendición). Wishing you boundless blessings!
Originating from the 17th century, a stray cat taken in by the Gotokuji Temple in Japan was believed to have saved a samurai lord from being caught in a thunderstorm through raising its paw and beckoning him to enter the temple. The legend of the beckoning cat spread and since then it has been honored as auspicious figurines placed in temples, businesses and homes.
