In the typical Marseille tarot, the Ace of Coins appears to be lying on the ground, among vines and roots. This version is the opposite, with the clown pulling the coin down from the sky. The lasso is a very literal take on “harnessing potential.”
A clown stands in the desert, roping a gigantic coin in a lasso over his head.
The clown wears a blue wig and a light-blue ten-gallon hat with a red five-pointed star on it. He also has a white and green button-down shirt and gloves, a bolo tie, wide blue pants with fringe down the sides, a red belt, and red pointy-toed shoes. He holds the coiled end of the rope at his waist with his right hand. His left hand is high in the air grasping the long winding rope that loops around the large coin.
Around the clown there is a desert landscape of yellow mountains and green and blue cacti with red and yellow blossoms.
The yellow coin is up in the sky, dominating the top half of the card. In the center of the coin there is a flower with four round blue petals, and four red leaf spikes between the petals. The middle of the flower is red with twelve black dots. The flower is contained in a round shape, resembling another flower with pointed petals or a stylized sun. Around this circle, there are sixteen green and gold triangles and sixteen red triangles.
