Coin Stories

This coin is being left at the grave of one of my best friends, Daniel Cavazos, who passed away nearly ten years ago in September 2011. I'd known Daniel for about 20 years. We met in high school. Daniel was the type of friend who was always there for you and never judged you. He believed that love should be plentiful, but that it was also a complicated emotion that kept us tied in bonds that we sometimes wished we could untie without hurting anyone in the process. Daniel had a huge impact on my life and was always there for me when I needed him. It is because of him that I believe in the power of kindness, community, and unconditional love. I hope that someone picks up this coin from his grave and helps pass it along on its journey, inspiring love and good deeds along the way, in honor of my very special friend that I miss deeply. Love always, Michaela.

Just found my stash of coins. Going to place in a geocache with my grandson. I raise butterflies and love to share good environmental practices and gardening to increase their numbers. May this coin travel far and raise spirits just like the monarch that is on it does.

I bought this coin and am passing on to a colleague who I have yet to meet who lives in Boise. We have worked together for over a year but we only have seen each other on zoom due to Covid. I am going to Boise for a training and she is lending me her car for a few days and this is a gracious act of kindness and I want to pay it forward. I will be happy to see where this coin goes!

I received this coin from my boss turned friend. We've been incredibly busy at work and tensions are running high and so she recognized my extra hours and doing more than my job entails by gifting me this coin. It really warmed my heart and refilled a void that I have been feeling.

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

This Coin is headed off in a small package to world famous Joe Van Cleave. Thanks for all you do for the Typewriter Community, Joe!

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

Travelled from Pyatt, Arkansas to Oak Lake Trails Resort in Oklahoma. Went hiking at there and left this coin and a small gift of a favorite necklace on a bench along the trail. Hope however finds it enjoys it.

Für Gert, bei dem ich mich schon seit zwei Jahren (oder so) bedanken wollte.

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 Claudia, mit der ich seit mehr als 30 Jahren befreundet bin, die bei einem der schlimmsten Momente meines Lebens dabei war, und die diese Butterfly-Idee hoffentlich (bestimmt) auch gut findet.

This coin was presented to me by a very special friend.

Für Johanna, die diese Münze ganz vielleicht in die weite Welt hinausträgt.

Für Lars. Als Pfadfinder könnte er diese Idee vielleicht gut finden ...

Für die liebe Ela, mit der ich schon seit mehr als 30 Jahren befreundet bin, die im Notfall auch nachts um zwei für mich da ist, und die diese Butterfly-Idee hoffentlich auch gut findet.

Für Marcel, der mir von Bookcrossing erzählt hat, und wodurch ich dann überhaupt erst von dieser Butterfly-Coins-Idee gelesen habe.

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

The lady who does my cleaning gave me the coin because, she said, I’d been so nice to her. Of course I have because I absolutely adore her! She’s a Christian woman and a very hard worker. I’d have no other person to do this job.
I should give it to her again because she is such a help to me (I’m disabled).

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 ❤️💜❤️

This coin was given to me by a wonderful friend named Peggy before she passed away. Now I hold this coin close to my heart.

My Dad gave us all these coins on Christmas 2019. Little did we know the chaos that would engulf our world in 2020. My dad has always been a man of great character, known perfectionist, and loving father/husband/friend. But I am most proud of my Dad's loving heart and always seeing the good in people. Throughout his career in education, I watched him treat all people - students, staff, parents alike - with kindness and respect. Even in the most challenging of circumstances and when it would have been much easier to not be, my Dad maintained love and kindness at the heart of his role as leader. I hope that this little coin will continue to spread the kindness that this world needs more than ever through the magic of paying it forward.

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🙌

This coin was given when i lived in Danbury, CT...so it hasn't traveled far but traveled a little bit.

I at this moment do not remember why or from who I received this coin.
I absolutely love the idea of paying it forward. Not sure what I will do with this but hopefully whomever finds this will log in and write their story. I plan to put $ and a note with it. "May the person who finds this be blessed with good luck and remember to pay it forward and log in to record what good deed they did"

Ken Allen’s Retirment on 6/15/2021
I am grateful to have worked with you for the past 13 years. You are a servant leader in all that you do. Ken I am going to miss you being in the office everyday. Thank you for being willing to do whatever was necessary to help the team succeed. Thank you for embracing change and being a lifetime learner. Thank you for your faithful witness of the Gospel of Christ. Mostly thank you for being my friend. God bless you on this next chapter. I know you will continue to serve and encourage others to do the same. May the things you will do, be greater than the things you have done. Keep the faith!

from Nelson to Robyn☺

This little guy is tucked away in a package of "stuff," headed to a friend in Mesa, Arizona. Hi, Ted!

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!
