    What is so fragile that even saying its name will break it?

    Silence is often considered fragile because it can easily be disrupted or broken by any form of sound or noise. It is a delicate state that can be shattered even by the mere act of speaking its name. The concept of silence relies on the absence of sound, making it vulnerable to any form of disturbance. Therefore, mentioning or acknowledging silence can paradoxically disrupt it, making it no longer present.

The head side usually features a design or an image, while the tail side typically displays a number or another design.
