  1. thank you very much, elina.
    they are chinese gold ingots, used as currency in ancient Chinese times (Qin/Tang/Qing dynasties).
    today, they (most plastic made ones) are used to symbolize prosperity and displayed at Chinese New Year.
    the Chinese characters embossed on the ingots are auspicious characters for good luck, happiness and prosperity.

    best regards,
    kap
