This is a Bat Amulet shown biting on a string of five coins. The five coins are interpreted as the representation of five blessings from heaven namely health, love, wealth, longevity and happiness.
In traditional China, the bat is a popular auspicious symbol of good luck and wealth, because the sound for Bats in Chinese, "Fuk" is similar to good fortune and happiness. During the days of the Manchu emperors, bats were the most popular symbol after the dragon being embroidered in imperial robes for high ranking officials and the emperors. The designs were usually combined with other symbols of longevity, such as crane birds to connote long life and happiness.
You can hang this item on the wall or above the door in your home or office, in the wealth corner or in the car to invite endless good fortune and wealth as well as to bring happy tidings.
