One of the most famous contributions of traditional Chinese culture to the general heritage of humanity is a unique way of looking at duality. According to ancient Chinese cosmology, a fundamental chaos of pure potential energy — calledqi— organizes itself to enable the self-creation of the universe through a fruitful paradox of opposed and complementary principles.Yangis the principle of action, andyinthe principle of reception, both of which are necessary for any kind of productive change or transformation in nature to take place. The two principles are symbolically united in the image of thetaijitu,a diagram that shows each to be present in the other and that is featured in Tokelau’s Equilibrium coins, the fifth issue of which is the 2022 Tokelau Equilibrium 1 oz Silver Coin currently on offer in brilliant uncirculated quality from Provident Metals.

A cameo-style high-relief effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, set against a textured background, dominates the obverse side and confirms each piece as legal tender. She’s accompanied by inscriptions of her name, the country and year of issue, and confirmation of the coin’s weight and purity.
Ataijitusymbol with integrated and carefully detailed decorative touches is featured on the reverse. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “EQUILIBRIUM” and “5 DOLLARS.”
Thetaijitusymbolizes quite possibly the most widely famous traditional Chinese insight into duality and into how opposing principles can work together to create a kind of fruitful paradox. Nature and life are full of apparent dualities and opposites: the light and the dark, fire and water, expansion and contraction, and even moral ideas like order and disorder. According to Chinese philosophy, these dualities are related, and neither can exist without the other. This idea of interconnected opposites is fundamental to vast tracts of ancient Chinese thought and practice, including exercise and martial arts, traditional medicine, science, and more. The necessity of each pole to the other is visually illustrated by thetaijitudiagram that features on the Equilibrium coin series.
