The Japanese five-yen coin have a dazzling gold hue with a hole in the centre. Some people would even string a ribbon through the hole to carry it around as a good luck charm.

With this in mind, AEON CO. (M) BHD., will be giving away a five-yen coin with every purchase of new wallets or purses from six selected AEON Stores with the Prosperity Lucky Wallet promotion. Shoppers will be able to redeem their lucky “Go-en” coin from the Customer Service Counter (GMS Department) with every new Men’s or Ladies’ Wallet purchase from today, while stocks last.

“We hope to bring a little piece of the Japanese culture to our customers in Malaysia. The “go-en” lucky charm is a tradition that many Japanese believe in and we hope that this promotion will bring much luck and prosperity to customers who have purchased a new wallet or purse from AEON,” said Mr. Shinobu Washizawa, Managing Director of AEON CO. (M) BHD.
