The Chinese three-legged Money Toad, or Jin Chan, is believed to be a symbol of good luck and a famous feng shui charm that brings fortune and prosperity to the home. According to Feng Shui beliefs, Jin Chan symbolises the flow of money and helps attract and protect wealth, and guards against bad luck.

The Money Toad is often depicted with a Chinese coin in its mouth sitting atop piles of coins or bullion with a scroll in front of it. The toad only has three legs and a flat, broad body and sometimes is depicted with red eyes and seven spots on its back symbolising the stars.
