Product description

Since childhood we are used to connect a four-leaf clover with luck but we often don’t know why. However, this tiny plant attracts us magically and even in adulthood our eyes sometimes wander in a field of clover whether we don’t by chance spot one. One has less luck in life, another more and finds a four-leaf at first sight among thousands of shamrocks (i.e. trefoils).

Czech Mint has decided to facilitate to everyone the search for luck and prepared the issue of a gold ducat with the popular motif for those who were not yet so lucky. The design was created by talented designer Zuzana Hubená. A four-leaf made of pure gold is a precious symbolic gift able to express your affection for the person to whom you give it. Moreover, according to tradition, gold ducat four-leaf for luck brings luck and protection to its owner and to everyone in the house.

A chimney-sweep, a piglet, an elephant, a horseshoe – symbols that are expected to bring to our life happiness and success. However, nothing apparently surpasses the positive strength of a four-leaf. It does more than attract luck, it also fulfils secret wishes. On top of that each leaf has a special meaning. The first one expresses faith, the second hope, the third love and the fourth foil the desirable luck. In the Irish tradition the trefoil is considered to be a sign of the Holy Trinity – The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit – and, finding a four-leaf allegedly means God’s grace. According to another possible interpretation four leaves symbolize four elements – fire, water, earth and air and bring also love and money and protect against evil and evil spell. Single women also place a four-leaf under their pillow so that they could see their future groom in a dream. To protect your house against evil forces and yourself from illness, you should – according to a medieval superstition – place a four-leaf at the door, windows and on the bed.

Whether you believe in the four-leaf symbolism or not, gold ducat Four-leaf for Luck is sure to bring plenty of joy to everyone to whom you give it.
