Facai, or "good fortune", is a phrase commonly used to celebrate Lunar New Year. Ancient Chinese Currencies, a long-term exhibition at the National Museum of China, shows coins, ingots and notes from its collection. There are also vessels, figurines and other objects of antiquity that show currency's various roles in people's lives over time. The exhibition reflects upon how ancient Chinese valued wealth, how the financial system developed and what role currencies played in exchanges with other civilizations.
