The Meaning of the Sealed Coin: A coin with a horseshoe motif is sealed within the Knight. During the 16th century, people hung horseshoes above their front doors to protect their homes and invite good luck. Many still believe that a horseshoe hung with two ends pointing up, forming a "U" shape, can ward off evil spirits.
The Meaning Behind a Coin: In the US finding a one cent coin - or "lucky penny" - is believed to bring good luck. Meanwhile, many Europeans customarily give religious coins or tokens to people they love. The coin is perceived as a symbol of fortune, and is given with the wishes that it will bring luck and prosperity to the recipient.
