What is a coin turtle you ask? Maybe it is a charm to help attract money into your house... it is green after all, like money. I rather like that definition, because the other option is that is supposed to be a Japanese Coin turtle which really aren't all that green in real life... Well, whatever else it is, it IS really cute! Hagen-Renaker makes these delicate porcelain figurines. They come attached to a little paper square. The paper is removable by soaking in water for a few minutes. Size: About 1-1/2" long and comes in a small gift box.
