These are authentic recreations of Ching Dynasty era currency, which were round coins with a square hole in the center. This idea was used to allow people to string coins together into sets of 8,10, 20, 50 and so forth. However, in Taoist thought the round coin and square hole represent heaven and earth. The circle of the coin represents the heavens, while the hole is the earth at the center.
