Lucky Dollar

“Your luck will soon be at a high point.”


When is a dollar worth more than a dollar? This lucky bill was given to me by a family friend. Look closely at the serial number. Do you see the row of 8’s?

Since the Chinese for “eight” sounds like the word for “wealth,” people think it’s quite lucky. These special dollar bills were snatched up by those looking for prosperity in their near future.

Fun fact: Opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in China happened on 8/8/08 at 8 seconds and 8 minutes past 8pm local time.
