Dreaming of coins refers to a dream in which the subject dreams of seeing or using money. It is considered generally positive, as it signifies that the dreamer will receive some sort of money from an unknown source and not have to work for it.
Dreaming of Coins – the Overview
Myths and Facts: There are several myths surrounding this type of dream, including that dreaming about coins means you’re wealthy, your business deals will succeed, or they will find treasure.
Other myths include thinking that if you hold onto a coin in your hand while sleeping then you’ll wake up with more money in the morning. There are also legends stating that if you carry a penny with you through three states (or seven) without spending it, then when you return home there will be enough money to pay for a new house.
The Facts: It is not uncommon for people to dream of coins, and it has little influence on your life or finances in the real world. It does not mean you’re wealthy; instead, it means you’ll receive money from an unknown source.
However, if the subject does hold onto a coin before he/she has woken up then they could experience an increase in wealth or business luck.
If the subject’s dream revolves around someone giving him/her money or handing over a bag filled with gold coins then this could be interpreted as being lucky.
However, if other symbols such as books are also included (particularly old texts) this indicates that the subject will spend their newfound fortune on knowledge instead of material goods.
