Coin Stories

I purchased this coin in the hopes I will be able to pass it along with a good turn. I love these coins and the Butterfly concept!

Gave to daughter in Lincoln, NE

I am distributing this coin in honor of my son’s memory. I lost him in 2011 and I know I can never repay the kindness and compassion my family received after the tragic loss. May God bless you if you receive this coin. Brenda

March 14. 2019 My husband and I met a gentleman at the Southeast VA clinic in Tucson, AZ. He is a retired businessman and he visits the area VA clinics weekly to give away wooden pen holders (that he makes himself) as a gift to veterans. We were so impressed by his selfless act of gratitude to service members! He goes to 3 different VA clinics throughout the week- spreading his joy and gratitude to the Veterans at each clinic. We are inspired by Jerry to express gratitude more freely. We are giving him this butterfly coin today.

We ordered this coin from Kevin and Kim @ The Awesome Possum in Hamburg, IA. Today we received it in the mail and we will be looking for an opportunity to let it fly here in Tucson, AZ!

I received it at a Phoenix Suns Vs OKC basketball game while in line to buy pizza.

My amazing Uncle Ron one of the founders of ButterflyCoins gave me this coin in Hutchinson Kansas for Christmas and I’m traveling back to San Francisco tomorrow. I’m so excited to find someone to give it to, thank you Uncle Ron!

Giving this coin to my intrepid Californian niece Traci. Hope she makes the next release as special as she is!

So grateful and can’t wait to pass on the love!

Giving this coin to my amazing niece Angela. She’ll know what to do. :)

Coin is safely living in our lakefront home in Sagle--soon to fly the coop though. Stay tuned for where it lands! Bill & Rick

Recieved this coin in Houston, TX for Christmas from my best friend in Austin, TX. Such a wonderful idea & gift. Thank you!

Yay, Jilli! Glad to see you got a head start registering your coin! Love, Uncle Gary

I was visiting my grandmother in Pittsburgh for Christmas and I got the coin from my uncle who lives in Chicago. I live in Virginia.

This was as gift from a friend Thad I’ve never met, but who grows closer every day. I’m going through one of the roughest patches in my life and this is one of the best Xmas gifts I got. I will hold onto it until better times are on the horizon and then pass it on to someone more in need than me right now. Thanks, Nate.

I was given this coin for Christmas by a friend. I will find a way to pass it forward.

One of two coins given to me by a very sweet and kind young woman, my son's girlfriend!

Pastor John helped spread God's Word. Merry Christmas and Fly On!

Hey! My dad gave me this coin when he saw me give mine to a complete stranger. I'm excited to see where else this coin goes!!

My brother-in-law have this coin to me at a gift exchange for our family Christmas.

Purchased coins because my friend, Kaori, started this with her husband. One of their missions is "to perform large, publicly-visible random acts of kindness with a significant portion of their profits" and I like that.

I have not decided who to give my last coin to.

To bill and Rick thank you for the great evening of wine and conversation! Do good and fly on!

Received coin from Dennis after he took me flying from Junction City Ks to Benton Ks and back for breakfast for my Birthday!

My mom got us all coins to help kind acts

Going flying today will see where this one ends up

I helped my 5th grade teacher arranging the desks so she can add new furniture. It was really fun to finally pass this coin into someone else’s hands.

I received this coin as a gift from a kind, generous woman who believes in the power of good to change the world for the better. In a city as big as NYC, there are ample opportunites to be kind. I hope that the next recipient keeps this spirit of giving alive.

An evening of rich conversation, shared kindness (lots of everyone buying everyone drinks), and meeting of new friends. Credit goes to Mary Kay for seeing the obvious Butte in the Butterfly Coins. :) Love Butte America and the Silver Dollar saloon!

This coin was purchased as a Christmas gift and was given to my mother-in-law in hopes that she will do something kind for someone else this holiday season, or in the coming year. May it be well-received and spread kindness throughout its journey!

Note: The Butterfly Effect is, simply stated, the theory that small causes can have large effects. Please remember that if you were given this coin, it should be treated like a butterfly - admired for its beauty for awhile and then released back into the wild. To have the largest effect, it needs to continue on its journey!

This was my first coin to be handed out. I gave it a to man in the grocery store line after I let him go ahead of me, and told him the story of the coin. He's already written his part of the story, and I was so pleased to see that it's already moving on. Thank you, sir, and good luck with the coin.

I just gave this coin to a young lady and her mom who had ran out of gas 1/2 mile from the gas station. My wife was driving a few minutes ahead of me, and stopped when she saw the young lady walking on the side of the road, having just left her mom in their vehicle on the side of the road, out of gas. the daughter was walking towards the gas station. My wife called me and told me what was going on, so I just drove past them to the gas station, got a gas can and a couple gallons of gas, and brought it to them. We put the gas in their vehicle and got them on their way to the station to fill up their tank. I hope we made their day a little easier, and they pay it forward to someone they meet!

I wanted to send a special gift to a special friend who I know will pass it on to other special people in their lives and I get to watch how far it travels and the kind words that are written about how they received it.

I received this coin from my cousin for Christmas 2018. Butterflies were my aunt's thing....along with so many other wonderful things. Her death brought so much heartache, but her life brought so much love. In her honor I will pass this coin along, just as she passed the gift of her love to me. I hope all that touch this coin as it travels along the journey find themselves as truly blessed as I am.

I received this coin in line at the supermarket. The woman in front of me in line let me go ahead of her and then gave me this coin. I’m looking forward to pay it forward and pass along this coin in hopes that it’s journey will be long and touched by many with peace and love for all.

Very thoughtful gift from someone who has grown to be very special in my life. I was told how big of an impacted, I have made in their life, based on the Universal law of cause and effect. I live my life under 1 concept, that is when you receive, you must give back.. Not just to manipulate the Law of Attraction, but to pay it forward by doing something nice for random people with no expectation of receiving anything in exchangr, but to do selfless deeds that may seem small to you, but could have enormous ripple effect on another. When I am asked what do I want from them? I reply pay it forward.
So now I pass this coin to you, manner of our friendship was unorthodox, Though we have not personal met one another, you are 1 of the few I call a friend, you have helped me with things and I did same for you. Your trust in me for what you did this last year, had such an impact, friends Ive Known most of my life never put that level of trust onto me. And for that you always have a friendship here. So naturally I choose to send this off to you as a gesture of our friendship, I know you will keep this going. You inspired and gave me hope when I was at a lose of a plan of action.
Helped me when no one else would.
For that thank you!

Helped my mom with around the house cleaning

I bought and made my boss a margarita and gave him the coin to take to the city with him (better chance to spread its wings as I’m living in a very small town!)

Now its in my pocket! Thank you so much for paying it forward <3

This coin and idea all started with you. 7 in total that I have given out this holiday sesson. Each one with their own journey. Your generosity and the way you look at the world is inspiring. You're warm and a light to many people who meet you. You've inspired me to change the world and these 7 coins will do just that. It's no coincidence that I have started with 7 coins and they will forever be out there inspiring the next person. It all started with you. Take this coin and pass it on. Keep this code so you can look back and see the impact you've had on people. And always remember this.. It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world.

In my pocket.....I set this butterfly free in the mall, while taking my mom Christmas shopping. Bought a random stranger breakfast. I think it made her morning! Pay it forward, and fly on.

Initial purchase as a Christmas gift for Nathan from dad...

I am shipping this coin as a Christmas gift to my family in NY.
Make a trip big :)

Gave this coin as a gift to a sweet friend......hoping she spreads kindness with it.....fly on!

This coin is in my pocket, waiting for the right opportunity to release it along with a random act of kindness, hoping to track it as people pay it forward. I'll update it's story as soon as it's been released!

I'm excited to follow all 105 coins originating in Hamburg, Iowa.

In my pocket......

My roommate just gave me this he helped me get off the street. I am so great ful and can not wait to pass it on. He showed me what true friendship is....

Born in Austin making its way to Houston, TX

I purchased 10 coins to gift this Christmas. This is 1 of 2 going to my boyfriends mom, Marilyn.

A young gentleman out on the streets was in the midst of lending a hand to his acquaintance in caring for his dog. Upon pettin' his friend's dog, the gentleman asked for spare change. I didn't have cash on me, but I offered a couple of cigarettes for him & his friend. They kindly accepted and offered me this token of gratitude.

What a wonderful concept!
