Is the 888 at the beginning supposed to be a lucky number? I guess the 88800088 would be the one to have :rolleyes:

8 is a lucky number.  You will see a lot of Western mintages try and incorporate 8 for a lot of Chinese related coins.

Perth Mint Figure of Eight Coin - 8,888

Royal Mint Lunar Dog Silver Proof - 5008

Royal Mint Lunar Dog Bullion - 138,888

Royal Mint Lunar Sheep Bullion - 188,888

Canada Feng Shui Good Luck Charm - 388

Yes, in Chinese, the number 8 (ba) sounds like fa , which means to prosper or be wealthy.  The number 4 is bad though, as si sounds like the word for death.

2013 full sovereign for my daughters date run.

There was a little mix up, it was supposed to be the 2018 , i was advised it was shipped a week ago by mistake , they were out of stock. Once i called to see where it was the error was quickly spotted. We agreed id take a 2013 instead and it was shipped 1st class recorded yesterday free of charge.
