Comments

The significance of the bat (Flying Mammal) in Chinese Customs is that bats are harbingers of 5 blessings (life, wealth, health, love of virtue & death after achieving one's destiny)

The Stylish design (rounded version) of the Chinese Characters 澳門 on the obverse is designed in such a way that it symbolizes 'Shou' or 'longevity'.
