Why are Coins Lucky?

Our new Lady Luck necklace is unlike our bracelet. It has an ancient Chinese coin estimated to be about 500 years old! But why are coins lucky? What about them brings good fortune to the wearer?

Lady Luck Necklace
Abundance, Confidence, Inspiration \

Lucky traditions related to coins reach back to times when people believed mercurial gods oversaw their lives and paying tribute to these deities by tossing coins away was habitiual. Gods of the sea, who were believed to control many aspects of ancient life, were apparently just sa happy for people to fling coins into a fountain as into the sea itself, and the practice of throwing coins into wells to keep them from running dry became common as far back as ancient Greece.

How can we use these ancient traditions for luck in our own lives? Toss a coin into a well or fountain for general luck. Turning a coin over in your pocket at the sight of the new moon will guarantee financial success all month long. A coin with a hole in it will bring good luck. And wearing a coin on a necklace brings wise financial decisions because it encourages seeing the positive in life instead of the negative and it strengthens confidence by teaching the wearer that life is full of abundance- especially when Lady Luck is by your side.
