Laughing Buddha or Budai, the two coins merge two popular techniques with an ever cheerful Laughing Buddha image.
The silver coin weighs a whooping two ounces and has an elegant black proof surface finish. The gleaming Laughing Buddha is gilded and struck in a striking smartminting high relief. The silver coin is limited to 888 pieces.
The gold version on the other hand is a classic CIT special shape, 0.5 gram coin. However, the charming Laughing Buddha struck in a stylized relief now measures 13.92 mm, instead of the usual 11 mm thanks to Big Gold Minting technology.
