"Qian" means money.
It consists of 3 words - gold on the left and two daggers on the right. Having money means we are accepting gold and danger at the same time. One follows the other like the shadow following our body.
The ancient Chinese were very cleaver to create the word money with two daggers. It reminds us not to be greedy and not to show off our possessions. There is a saying in Chinese "Possessions are not to be seen by others"
