ANTIQUE (1726-?) SHOGUNATE JAPANESE Bronze 1 Mon SHIN KANEI TSUHO Coin
Coins have a long history of bringing good luck. Coins are the obvious symbol of prosperity and wealth.
Coins with Holes
It is told that coins with holes are especially auspicious. An old superstition from England tells us that if you always carry a coin with a hole in your purse or pocket, you will never be without money.
During a new moon you must take your coin with the hole out of your pocket or purse. Hold the coin in your hand and spit on it for good luck. Return the coin to your pocket.
Common Lucky Coins
Coins minted in a leap year are promising luck bringers.
Personal lucky coins may include a coin minted in the year you were born or a year that is special. A special year could be your wedding year, the year you got your first job, your graduation year and so on. It could be any year.
The only condition is that it holds happy memories for you. So from now on be sure to check what year your coins were minted. You may just come across a personal lucky coin.
Keep a jar of coins in your kitchen to bring prosperity and wealth into the household.
Bent, crooked or damaged coins are always lucky. If you find a bent coin you can count your blessings. Some give a bent coin to a person they care deeply about for good luck.
Always keep a penny in your pocket for luck. Never leave your house with an empty wallet.
Never give someone a purse or wallet without putting a little money in it first. If you gift someone an empty purse or wallet you are wishing the receiver “an empty purse”. That is not very nice.
Coins and the new moon seem to go together. When you spot a new moon remember to turn the coins in your pocket around. This action is told to ensure financial success for the next month.
