I found Mom a shiny golden sycee to wish her a prosperous Lunar “Moo” Year!  All hail Emperor Kirby!  🧧👑🐢✨🐮🏮

✨  In imperial China, gold and silver ingots used as currency (called “sycees”) were minted in many different shapes, from squares to flowers to even tortoises.  Today, boat-shaped sycees are popular for Lunar New Year to symbolize prosperity and good fortune—or to make a festive hat if you’re a tiny tortoise!  🍫🎩

(Such a shame that tortoise-shaped sycees aren’t more popular!)
