I received my coin from my Niece, Mara, who is one of the kindest, loving, ambitious young ladies I have ever met. I love her so much!! She is a role model to how the world should be.

Coin xrzh aka "Vision"

The coin was today, 20st of April 2020, sent by mail from London, England, to a dear contact in Montreal, Quebec.

The coin is given to express gratitude to this person for expressing her quest to unravel a vision on the relationship between all beings be they human or otherwise.

It was sent as part of a parcel containing posters intended to inspire people to come together.

Thank you for showing me a pathway I thought sometimes too dangerous to walk but now worth exploring further.

I have received this butterfly coin from my best friend Samantha Bush. Who will always have a place in my heart. There are many more family vacations, camping trips, BBQs, and birthday's to spend together with our family. Samantha is a daughter to my dad, mother to my kids, and a sister to my husband and me. And would not have it any other way. I love you girl.

I sent this coin to my niece's son, Riley, on April 18, 2020. Riley has a heart of gold and is kind and generous to others in so many ways. I predict that this butterfly will soar across the world should he decide to give it to someone when he pays his kindness forward. I wish I would have given this butterfly a name. Maybe he will. (from my heart in Wausau, WI to his heart in Stevens Point, WI)

I sent this coin to another book group member who has been very patient as I get a package to her that was sent to the wrong address.

I passed this coin onto a member of The Brenda Novak Book Group on 4/17/20 to South Ogden, UT with the $10 Starbuck's Gift Card that I received with it to pass along.

I recieved this coin from a dear friend and now I'm sending it one to another dear friend. I have put prayers of faith, health, wholeness and happiness on this coin for all who encounter it. Please feel free to add your own. Sending love and peace to all.

Gave this coin to my niece on her Birthday.
Love this girl so much, she is my hero!

I am sending this coin to Maya, a very special girl with a beautiful heart. I want to help brighten her 8th birthday during Covid19. It is difficult to not see your friends, especially on your birthday, and I'm hoping this will help bring that gorgeous smile of hers out for us all to see. Enjoy your day Maya. Saving the butterflies through kindness.
Love, Aunt Debbie
(April 18, 2019 - leaving Wausau, WI and headed to Stevens Point, WI)

I am sending this coin off to a family that has had some hard times and could use some positive focus. I hope this butterfly brings joy and happiness!

Adding location

This coin found me via Covid-19, a generous co-worker made 4 masks for my family and sent the coin to remind us to pay it forward. This prompted me to send a Target gift card to a person in need during these crazy times. Will send on ward from White Bear Lake Minnesota.

After careful tutelage and precise training, Kaci Murringer completed her first IDITAROD under our kennel name ( as an apprentice. I have given Kaci this coin as she begins to embark on another epic trip! She will be driving nearly 4,000 miles from AK to MI holding onto this very coin before she passes it on. LET KINDNESS PREVAIL AND SHINE ON! Do good an Fly on!

I gave this coin to someone who day in and day out makes a difference in others lives especially mine. This coin represents the story of the ­čŽő the struggles we go through are not what we ask God for instead sometimes the struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If God allowed us to go through life without any challenges there would be no growth. Having faith in God we can overcome any obstacle no matter the size. You were placed in my life for a reason and I hope we can learn to grow allowing God to lead our way. I love you!

This is the beginning of this coins journey. I am sending it to my good friend, Jean. Jean always goes above and beyond to take care of everyone around her, whether family or friends or a stranger in need. Jean took time to send cards to the long term care facility where I work, just to brighten the days of some of our elder's while they are not able to visit with family due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Jean has spent her entire life paying it forward and I can't wait to see the next chapter in this coin's story as she passes it on!

I am dedicating this Monarch Butterfly coin to my mother Doris. Her generosity and love of nature makes this butterfly coin a fitting tribute to her. Love you Mom! Keep this coin moving with good deeds!

I am sending this coin to my daughter, Carly, as she is having a hard time with this virus and trying to plan a wedding.

My wife and I had a community center in Bridgeport CT. One day a dear friend of the center handed me this coin. I am sure she knew exactly what she was doing. It has been sleeping for a long time and I wanted to release it into the world. For the sake of Amity and connection. This coin is released with my intention that it bring us together overtime helping us see that we are all connected. I send this out to the world with love and gratitude to you who have found it and all who will receive it in the future. Love Marc

This is where the coin started!

Hi, this butterfly coin is currently/started in Spokane Washington. Due to the Covid-19 virus, I can only hope this coin spreads kindness. So, please take care and spread the love!

I am going to mail this to my grandmother in California so this coin can keep going to new people!!She is always going out of her way to help other people.

I got this from a friend helping me and I will give it to my friend to keep this going on!!!

Gestern habe ich einen sehr sympathischen Mann kennengelernt. Wir unterhielten uns und im Laufe des Gespr├Ąches mit ihm kam heraus, dass er ├Âfter auf sein Herz und sein Bauchgef├╝hl h├Âren wollte. Das war f├╝r mich der Anlass diese M├╝nze weiterzugeben um ihn dabei zu unterst├╝tzen. Ich bin sicher der Schmetterling wird ihn befl├╝geln.
Alles Gute auf dem weiteren Lebensweg.

Diese M├╝nze kommt wieder in meine Tasche damit ich immer daran denke gutes zu tun. Bis sie weiter reisen darf. ÔŁĄ´ŞĆ

Auch diese M├╝nze rei├čt zun├Ąchst los in der bookcrossing Wellness Box. Mal sehen mit wieviel positiver Energie sie sich aufladen kann und wohin ihre Reise geht.

Diese M├╝nze wird in der K├Ârper und Geist Wellness Box von weiter reisen. Auf dass sie sich mit ganz viel positiver Energie aufl├Ąd und allen die sie auf ihrer Reise begegnet Gl├╝ck bringt.

Diese M├╝nze geht an Jini, eine sehr gute Freundin. Sie m├Âchte die M├╝nze an jemanden weiter geben der eine schwere Zeit durchmacht und einfach etwas Gl├╝ck n├Âtig hat.

Passed it on to Everyone's Mom in Huron, Ohio for all they things she does for the school and community. 4/3/2020

Sending the coin off to Canada to a fellow BookCrosser who loves Random Acts of Kindness.

Passing this coin to my beautiful daughter. She is love and light in my life.

March 20, 2020 - I've learned good hearts are hard to come by and if you listen well enough, people will tell you exactly who they are. I've also learned that silence is a very valuable weapon if wielded the right way and some people just aren't strong enough to use it. This coin has brought me peace in the most unbelievable ways and for that, I am thankful.

I have just received the coin from a loved one. As someone who is struggling strongly with depression, I will hold the coin until I feel happy again, then I plan to pass it onto a friend who is in need. :)

Yesterday, I headed to the drive-through pharmacy to pick up a prescription for an unexpected medical issue. As we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, I realize how important our pharmacy is to us and how the workers there are going above and beyond to handle the extra onslaught of people, many of whom are panicked, trying to get the medicine they need during this time. I had waited in line for at least 20 minutes (the line was that long) and as I pulled up to the drive through window, an employee named Sierra greeted me kindly. I noticed that she was late in her pregnancy and that the line inside the store was just as long as in the drive through line. She was also answering the phone calls coming in..... After she gave me my prescription, I said "I know this is unusual, but I want to give you this butterfly coin. Someone gave it to me for an act of kindness that I gave to her. I am giving this to you because what you are doing right now matters to so many people. I appreciate it and thank you." A big smile came over Sierra's face and she said "Thank you so much. That means a lot." It was a brief moment, yet so very powerful. We are all connected. Our words and actions matter to each other. Now more than ever, may we know that to be true.

I received this coin in June 2019 from Alicia. Alicia's is the daughter of the woman who received a kidney from me on 4/29/19.

I found out about Mari from a local TV station covering a fundraiser to help Mari with her medical costs related to her kidney disease. Mari had a poster displayed, behind her, looking for a donor. Mari was very emotional when she said she wanted to be "here" for when Alicia gets married and for her grandchildren. Her story and plea brought me to tears as I just had my second grandson on 3/5/18. I immediately called the phone number and realized I was one of the blood type she needed. I went that very afternoon and started the first of many tests to be a match for Mari!

I am happy to say that, as of this writing on 3/17/20, Mari and I are both healthy and fully recovered. I witnessed her daughter's wedding and Mari's joy as she was able to be present and healthy!

We dropped this beautiful wooden butterfly coin in geocache GC803E7, Mark's 4th cache. We hope someone who needs it will get it next! Thanks for sharing!

I found this marvelous token in the most amazing forest that I have been blessed to grow up in my whole life for that blessing this beautiful Monarch will be placed back in one of the most astonishing redwood forest this beautiful Humboldt nation has to offer

A new neighbor and her Schnauzer Iba stopped by on their walk to thank me for keeping a bowl of fresh water for animals stationed beside the gate. We discovered we had so much more in common, like a passion for gardening for pollinators. And, as they say, the rest is history...

I've always had this thing for butterflies my entire life something has always drawn me to them and my daughter knows how much I love butterflies and anything to do with them and what they symbolize. So she gave me this coin almost a year ago for my birthday well as a small portion of my birthday present but little did she know it was my favorite piece of the whole thing and then I realized what it was and what it was part of and that made it all more beautiful and amazing...

I received the coin in a gift a few months ago. I completely forgot about it until today. I'll pass it along to another person as soon as possible.

Just received this beautiful coin from my niece Kelsi. What a beautiful gesture it is. I am going to pass it on
to my sister Lori in Hurley, South Dakota.

This coin was given to me to pass on with a random act of kindness! IÔÇÖm very excited to pass it forward and follow its journey!

Purchased at Goodwill!

We found this proxy butterfly coin in a geocache. It was geocache #GC31HQ6 called Stargate San Diego. We were on vacation. We have brought it home to southern Arizona. After we show it to family, we will pass it along.
