This suit symbol requires no abstraction – Coins are money, our wealth and possessions. The Suit of Coins encompasses both our belongings, and the places where we belong. The question in this suit is what to hold onto, and what to let go.
The designs for the coins themselves are after the Tarot de Marseille and similar decks like the Jacques Vieville (see Selected References). The four-petaled flower or cross in their center puts one in mind of the four classical elements. The cross can also be a reminder of religious or societal values.
As in the suit of Batons, every card in the suit of Coins is based on a specific lyric from the album.
