Coin Stories

I received this coin as a very special thank you from a friend when I sent him a typewriter he had always wanted. This is my first coin!

My friend Thomas and I went on a 22+ mile mountain bike ride today. He is an amazing man and a great friend (and an ok mountain biker.) He will be traveling to France soon and hopefully will pass the Butterfly coin on to someone there!

Wow, I’ve never seen this before, Scarlett! You sure know how to bring people together and make them smile. We all miss you, but I want you to know how strong your mom is and how much we see you in her. She’s so proud of you and you can be so proud of her. Speaking of butterflies, I saw a big, beautiful yellow butterfly the other day when I was on walk. I even tried to take picture but it wouldn’t stay still long enough! I bet you and everyone who saw were laughing and wondering what the heck this crazy lady was doing running around. I’ve never stopped to take a picture of a butterfly before. Next time, I’ll be quicker. ☺️

Hi Scarlett!
Marissa and I are in Central Park in NYC today and it’s so beautiful!! So many different people from all walks of life!! I was just telling Marissa that I wished you were here and she said not to worry because she feels like you can see everything through her S necklace that she always wears to remember you ❤️

Love you so much!!
Auntie Jennie and little Riss

😍😍 little mamas, guess what? Today I helped uncle Noah and Tori move in with grandma!! and uncle Isaiah was there too helping!! There was a whole big mix up issue with the U-haul.… it was kinda funny in a way that will be funnier much later when re-telling the story of “moving day” 😂 anyways, we missed you SOO much, you have no idea 💜and like Santos said, I’ve also been seeing butterflies 🦋 everywhere lately! Thank you for that babygirl! It’s been special every time🦋🥰 I think about you every single day. It’s been 10 weeks since you went back to heaven and it feels like just yesterday. I know time is different in heaven, but I gotta tell you babygirl, Time is different here on earth without you too. Right now, I’m babysitting matcha for auntie Jennie, she’s in New York with Riss!! They drove there and hit a 🦌 Bambi 😭😂 and messed up papas front bumper 😂 but remember when I told you about my trip to New York when I was a teenager (and uncle Noah got kicked off the subway 🤣🤣), well guess what that’s where they are now! And Santos has been there too and right now, guess what?? Mya is in Chicago for a big music festival!! And grandma and Noah and tori have been getting the basement ready for them, they put a shed up outside and are redoing the basement it’s so cool! You’d love it!! They are really getting it done! Harper misses you so much too! Grandmas been telling me how sometimes she been naughty because she’s missing you so much it makes her upset. So, Send her some extra love so she’s not sad all the time! Thanks babygirl!! Mama misses you sooooooo much 😘😘😘😘😘 I miss you to heaven and back! Always and forever 💜💜💜🦋🦋🦋❤️❤️❤️

Hey Scarlett! Today i went surfing for the 2nd time it was so fun! I caught a couple of waves and even saw a skark. My friends were all there and it was a really nice time. Ive been seeing a lot of butterflies lately and i feel your love everytime they appear. Your mom, aunt, and cousin are coming out next month and im so excited to show them all the cool things ive found here. I love you so much and miss you everyday! <3

Santos,

This Coin is stowing away in a small package to Sarah. Thank you so much for your kindness, Sarah!

I rec'd this coin as a gift from a good friend It will be spending some time in my purse for a while

Für Birgit, ohne die ich noch immer kein Bett hätte.

Got mine from fabulous Fabulosia <3

Found this by the “OLYMPICS WANNABES” statue. A child was holding it. It was so cool to find it there, especially since I thought it was just part of the statue.
I called my parents to see how they are doing. Which made them happy :) especially my mom. Since she enjoys the nature very much and it is really beautiful and green here on the campus.

This coin was in the Children’s Garden at the Penn State arboretum. Finding it made me feel like a little kid again, and made the children’s garden feel even more special :)

To Steph,
Thank you for opening my eyes and giving me the love that I have always searched for. You are an amazing human with so much to give. I love you to the moon and back!

Ich vermisse einen QR Code und eine App mit der ich den weiteren Weg verfolgen könnte.

Wenn ich den Coin jetzt weitergebe kann ich den Code nicht mehr nachsehen und wie bitte soll man sich xdds-cvm bitte sinnvoll merken :-)

Für Jost. Vermutlich findet er das alles albern, und kann damit nichts anfangen. Er bekommt trotzdem diese Münze. Ich bin mir aber sicher, dass er die Münze schnell weiterreicht, und nicht vergisst.
Bitte auch nicht eine kurze Nachricht vergessen!

Für Steffi. In der Hoffnung, dass sie das Prinzip/die Idee gut findet.
Vielleicht - vielleicht auch nicht - jedenfalls bekommt sie jetzt diese Münze - so oder so.

Hi Bubbie. I know you’re with Jesus but I miss you very much. It is mom’s birthday today. I got her a Costco cake-of course. I am taking care of bluey just like mom said. Harper is doing ok but she misses you too. She is mopey but she also ate a bag of cashews and got a stomach ache. She is ok though. I love you punkin, GGL, Grandma

Good morning babygirl! It’s my 32nd birthday and I’m missing you like crazy but I know you’re here with me always. I love you so much! Auntie Jennie made me breakfast and I’m sitting here with uncle Sergio and tia Shirley and Santos and drinking my coffee talking about how beautiful you are. How much we miss you. I talked to grandma this morning and she misses her bubbie so much and she’s keeping bluey safe and I've got spirit with me too. Love you to the moon at back always and forever, I true love kiss you ❤️💜❤️

I received this coin from a dear friend and colleague. We discovered the life cycle of the Monarch together, as a team, while teaching it to our Kindergarten classes. It became a passion to instill in our students the true miracle of the Monarch Butterfly. Once you experience it, you will never look at a Monarch the same way again. Thank you for this gift, Tami. I now release it to my co-teacher who I could not have experienced this journey without. She was so instrumental in everything we taught to our classes. Our dream is to one day travel to the winter home to experience the migration in all its glory. Fly on to my dear friend, Debbie. Thanks girls for the memories!!!! 🖤🧡🥰🖤🧡

Yay nels🙌

from Nelson to Robyn☺

I left this coin with some unused firewood for the next person at my favorite fire pit. I’m so glad it is moving forward already.

My wife and I go on regular walks to enjoy the beauty of the birds of prey area in Idaho. We found this coin at a little used camp site overlooking the swan falls canyon. We look forward to adding to the coins forward adventures.

Der Coin hat es sich eine Weile bei mir gemütlich gemacht und darf jetzt mit einer anderen Box weiterreisen.
Viele Grüße aus Schleswig-Holstein!

I received this coin as part of the 2020 HGG. I am just now getting around to documenting it (even though the coin has been by my computer for several months).

I am passing the coin, and several books, to my sister who began teaching high school English second semester this year. She is creating a library within her classroom for students to be able to select from if they have down time or forgot their reading.

Lost without you!!!!

Wow!!! I really am in awe of the way you love me. I’m laying here with tears of joy streaming down my face. My heart is so full right now. I love that you are so giving of your heart to me. We learn more and more about each other everyday and I am definitely so blessed you are in my life and you love me tooooo much. You are my love!!!!!!

I really can't wait for the day when we can be together forever. You are one of the most precious things in my life. I never want to lose you. I can't wait till I have to drag you out of the craft room to watch a movie with me. I can't wait till we are entertaining both our kids and grandkids at our shared warm, beautiful, loving home. I love you. I love you. I love you. Smooches BTW only a nerd would listen to CMSGT AF Podcast. You - Robin Thick Lost Without You. Me - Justin Bieber - Peaches ft. Daniel Caesar, Giveon

The person who was skipped in this coins story is a canine rehabilitation technician I work alongside daily. The individual who gave it to her was very truthful when stating that miracles happen around her every day. I see her hands move with such love and grace in a way that heals and touches the hearts of her patients.
Today, I was honest when asked how I was doing while catching up over our weekend; I responded to her question which said that physically I was well but mentally I have been struggling. Later in the day I was gifted with a beautiful letter and this precious coin.
The kindness and blessings that flow from the woman who gave it to me is an inspiration and I am grateful to be apart of this story.

The coin will continue its journey from Geneva Elementary School in Geneva, Florida where it inspired donating supplies to a beginning teacher’s classroom to University Baptist Church in Orlando, Florida.

I found this coin on the Elk Head trail in Trinidad. I am from out of town and this coin will travel with me south.

I miss u.

We are on break right now. Man do I miss you soooo much. I know that your going through a lot right now and I am not helping the situation. I really want to be there for you, but I don’t know how. I have tried my best, but you are a different person sometimes. I love you. I love you. I love you. I want this to work so bad it brings me to tears. I keep saying that you taught me what LOVE means. I need you in my life you don’t have a choice. I love you toooo much.

I have been thinking about you and the significance of this coin. For the most part I did not really care if you gifted me one, you know these type of things don’t really jive with my personality. But, you gifting me one put a different spin on things. You continually expose feelings within me that I never knew I had. Not seeing you and the kids on hurts my heart so much. I can’t wait to make things permanent between us.

This past week was so awesome for me. I know it sounds selfish, but having you all to myself for seven days was a dream come true. You have taught me so many things throughout this relationship. You taught me a different kind of love that I have never felt in my life. My heart beats to a different drum when I’m around you. Your sense of humor, your laugh, your soft touch. I would not trade those things for anything in the world. I had a really good time in the Maldives with you. If that is a peek into our future then I am ready for the journey.

My friend Maille gave me this coin while I was walking with her to her house. We go to the same school and she had left it in a box on a tree, I don’t know who I am going to give this to, but I know I’ll give it to someone who deserves it. If you are reading this and I gave it to you. Thanks for being a good person. 😊❤️

I retrieved this coin in Humboldt at the Baker Beach outlook during negative tide. The coin will soon be hidden paired with glass on another marble hide.

I found this coin at the arcata marsh after Doing an epic photo scavenger hunt for a marble prize..... I have already rehidden it for someone else to find....

Hey love. We in here. More to come.

I hope this coin will continue to tell our love story. I love you so much!!

This coin was given to me by my Me Me. I live in Roanoke VA. I can't wait to see where this coin travels.

Received this coin from Wyoming and sent it off, but forgot to register it. Sorry, Cousin! Got it back and will try to do it right this time. We need more kindness in the world, so I'm sending it again with hopes that we become more aware of those that need an extra dose of love and respect.

Received from my dear friend in Sweden. I was so pleased to receive this. Bless your heart. I shall treasure it for a while and then see how I can do a kind deed and let it fly on. It's so beautiful.

Was working as a server one night, 8 months pregnant.... Exhausted, overwhelmed, and feeling alone. A beautiful family I was serving that night gave me this coin that they have held over two years in memory of their son. I now have a healthy and happy 4 month old baby boy. Being given this coin was what I needed at that time, I was broken and had lost hope. The family who handed down this coin to me had no clue what I was going threw and the hardships I was suffering. But this gesture of love was what I needed. And one day I will pass on this coin to someone I feel needs that glimmer of hope.

Discovered this coin traveling with 'Undercacher finally find 2000 caches' - MS7QCK and currently checked into Skyberg Travel Bug Motel - GC8AFNH, Kenyon Township, MN.

I'm sending this coin to a bookcrossing friend. I was so happy when they had clearly written on their profile a wish for a butterfly coin.

Fly on and do good, little coin!

I am passing this coin from Chesterton, Indiana to my former student in Valparaiso Indiana!
