    One of the most beautiful and meaningful coins ever minted... by a free Tibet

    Please Note: This is an authentic Tibetan Tanka Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

    True to its Bhuddist origins, every symbol on the these rare coins has a powerful meaning. The reverse, or back side of the coin has a Mandala featuring an eight-petaled flower at the center, symbolizing the eight paths to enlightenment and good fortune. The Legend around the Mandala reads: Ga-den Palace, Victorious in All Directions. On the obverse, or front to the coin, the Mandala features a central lotus flower, surrounded by Buddhism’s Eight Auspicious symbols, known collectively as the Ashtamangala.

    Your Silver Tibet Tanka:

    • Denomination: Tanka
    • Date: 1850 - 1948
    • Obverse (Front): Mandala with central lotus flower, surrounded by Buddhism’s Eight Auspicious symbols, known collectively as the Ashtamangala (see details below)
    • Reverse (Back): Mandala with eight-petaled flower at the center, symbolizing the eight paths to enlightenment and good fortune
    • Coin Metal: Silver
    • Bezel Metal: Proprietary, Non-Tarnishing Sterling Silver
    • Articulating Bail Interior Diameter: Will accommodate chain or leather necklace up to 5.8mm
    • Size: 1 1/4” Across, 1 1/2” Tall

    If you look at the Mandala on the lotus-centered side of the coin, the symbol directly above it (under the bail of your pendant) is the “Banner.” As you look clockwise around the circle of symbols you will find:

    1. The Victory Banner: This symbolizes the victory of Buddha’s teachings.
    2. The Golden Fish: The state of fearlessness and freedom from suffering.
    3. The Treasure Vase: The vase of abundance which gives health, longevity, wealth and wisdom.
    4. The Lotus Flower: Purity of speech, mind and body.
    5. The Conch Shell: The deep, thrumming sound of the dharma, which awakens all men from ignorance.
    6. The Endless Knot: The intertwining of wisdom and compassion, and the mutual dependence of all men.
    7. The Jeweled Parasol: Protection from evil and illness.
    8. The Wheel of Law: Bhudda’s teachings, in the form of the Noble Eightfold Path.

    Mandala literally means "circle." Tibet Tankas are legendary for their stunning art - they are at the same time and piece of history, a reminder of the search for enlightenment, and a piece of art you can now wear.

    Note: Your Certificate of Authenticity includes an illustrated guide to each of the symbols.
