The lucky chimney sweep brings in 2014 by successfully rowing his boat over the hump into the New Year while popping his champagne cork. Engraved with the loosely translated saying “Although, I am small and round, I’ll bring you luck all year round." Struck in .900 fine silver (ASW .1302 oz), these lucky tokens have been a tradition in Austria since the 1930s. Many people give them to each other with the wish for a happy, healthy and successful coming year. Austrians will carry the annual token in their purses, pockets and wallets for the whole year to maintain the best wishes at all times. The lucky token design is by Austrian Mint engraver Christa Reiter.
The chimney sweep, one of the most popular good luck charms, has already danced waltz on our chips and picked edelweiss. This time he sits surprisingly in a sailboat! Instead of sooty chimneys to sweep, the famous man is so white sail and wind over leaves with fresh clear water. This image can be interpreted in many different ways - as the lead casting the interpretation may of course take many themselves. Here we will give only one or two small suggestions, what message the lucky chip could bring in 2014 : "No wind is the one cheap, does not know where he wants to sail" ( Michel de Montaigne), "Who's been to the sea, does not shy away puddles" (from Russia) and "We can not change the wind, but set sail differently" (Aristotle).
