Solve the Chess Puzzle's challenge and find the lucky coin sealed inside! Hanayama Chess Piece Puzzles are brain teasers built into high quality chess puzzle pieces. Each cast metal, chrome-plated chess piece requires a different solution to open it and collect the cast-plated gold token hidden inside.

The Meaning of the Sealed Coin: A coin with an owl motif is sealed inside the Bishop. Owls are considered birds of wisdom and luck. In Greek and Roman mythology, the owl represented Athena and Minerva, the goddesses of wisdom. In China, owls were believed to ward away evil spirits, and in Japan, to bring good fortune.

The Meaning Behind a Coin: In the US finding a one cent coin - or "lucky penny" - is believed to bring good luck. Meanwhile, many Europeans customarily give religious coins or tokens to people they love. The coin is perceived as a symbol of fortune, and is given with the wishes that it will bring luck and prosperity to the recipient.

Hanayama Cast Chess Puzzles are recommended for ages 8 and up. Designed by Marcel Gillen of Luxembourg. The Bishop Chess Puzzle measures approximately 3-1/4" x 1-1/2" x 1-1/2".
