Description

Jin Chan (Chinese: 金蟾; pinyin: jīn chán; literally: "Golden Toad"), also called Chan Chu (Chinese: 蟾蜍; pinyin: chánchú; literally: "the Toad") or "Zhaocai Chan Chu" (Chinese: 招财蟾蜍; pinyin: zhāocái chánchú; literally: "wealth-beckoning toad"), is most commonly translated as "Money Toad" or "Money Frog". It represents a popular Feng Shui charm for prosperity.

This mythical creature is said to appear during the full moon, near houses or businesses that will soon receive good news (most of the time, the nature of this good news is understood to be wealth-related).

According to one Chinese legend, the Jin Chan was the greedy wife of one of the Eight Immortals, who was transformed into a toad as punishment for stealing the Peaches of Immortality.

The Jin Chu is usually depicted as a bullfrog with red eyes, flared nostrils and only one hind leg (for a total of three legs), sitting on a pile of traditional Chinese cash, with a coin in its mouth. On its back, it often displays seven diamond spots symbolizing the Big Dipper, or the Plough, which plays an important role in Chinese astrology.

According to Feng Shui beliefs, Jin Chan helps attract and protect wealth, and guards against bad luck. Because it symbolizes the flow of money, Feng Shui lore insists that a Jin Chan statue should not be positioned facing the main door ("outward"). It also "should never be kept in the bathroom, bedroom, dining room or kitchen".

Designer Notes

This highly detailed money toad is design to look greedy, grabbing 8 ancient coins (an auspicious number that represent wealth in Asia). This Frog is sticking out its tongue to depict it captured the coin like capturing a prey. It has also seven stars (dipper) behind its back. 3 legged and design to be cuter then the normal more ugly version. Accounting to Fengshui, it is best to wear on you left hand (receiving hand) middle finger.

Product Variation:

1) Antique Silver (Sterling Silver with Antique finishing)
2) Antique Silver with 2 Gems (Ruby in Eyes)
3) Antique Silver with 9 Gems (2 Ruby Eyes + 7 Blue Sapphire Dipper Stars)

4) Gold Plated with 7 Gems (Gold Plated - You can request Yellow, Pink or Black Gold Plating, Ruby as Eyes+ 7 Blue Sapphire Dipper Stars)


Please note this item is more difficult to make, we will take about 4-5 weeks to make.
