While the Three of Coins deals with feelings of possessiveness over a person, the Four of Coins shows possessiveness over objects and personal property. The sealed-off jars, guarded further by the central shield, illustrated closedness and things that are tightly held. In a positive sense this can meana conservation and good management of resources. In a negative sense it is hoarding and cupidity. The American-esque flag (like the one that “drags” in “Good Intentions Paving Company”) can also represent conservatism and nationalism.
