One of the most common inscriptions found on Chinese Buddhist temple coins is "a mi tuo fo" (阿弥陀佛). "A mi tuo fo", sometimes pronounced "e mi tuo fo", is the Chinese pronunciation for the Sanskrit name of the Amitābha Buddha (Amida Buddha). The "a mi tuo" is the transliteration of the Sanskrit word "Amida" which means "boundless" (wuliang 无量). "Fo" is the Chinese word for "Buddha".
