    Afternoon fellow stackers,

    Along with a stash of Mao badges, my father in law has also passed on to me these gold pendants. I was just wondering if anyone had any information or translations they can provide? There is;

    2x pendants that have some resin covering them. One has 999.9 as part of the applied printing but there are no other marks or stamps.

    1x credit suisse 6g 999.99 pendant with serial number

    1x year of the Monkey square pendant in red pouch stamped as 24K monkey close up.jpg monkey close up.jpg monkey close up.jpg

    Is there anyone in Brisbane that has free access to XRF for a fellow stacker to test these? Not really interested in selling these but would like to see if there is any information out there?

    At the very least, something different for you to look at :)

    The first one is a 24K gold Guan Yin religious medal for blessings and protection.

    Guanyin or Guan Yin is an East Asian bodhisattva associated with compassion as venerated by Mahayana Buddhists. She is commonly known as the "Goddess of Mercy" in English. The Chinese name Guanyin is short for Guanshiyin, meaning "[The One Who] Perceives the Sounds of the World".

    The other two are gold Buddha pendants, one marked with '9999 gold'.
