Coin Stories

My best friend Betty gifted this gorgeous butterfly coin to me after my ex-husband passed away in 2017. Betty is a truly amazing woman, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. She would give you literally anything you are in need of, even if it would make HER struggle because of it. And she does not ever expect anything in return except friendship, love and respect. I have known her for 20+ years and wouldn't trade a single day of knowing her for anything in the world!

Butterflies always remind me of Joe. And his favorite color was blue. Having a coin with this blue butterfly was the perfect fit for me. I have held onto it for almost six years now, as it made me think of him. I currently have terminal cancer with an unknown number of days/months/years left. The doctors said they expected I would have 6-9 months left. January 15th, 2023 was the 9 month mark, and I passed it right on by. Every day going forward is a win!

I have decided to pass on this coin to my high school bestie, TiNille. I met her when I first moved to Leavenworth, WA in 1993, and from that day we were connected. We have amazing memories together including; sneaking out during sleepovers for some raspberry filled powdered donuts, cheerleading together under the Friday night lights, Summer camp, ditching school, etc.

We lost touch, as many do after high school. But she has always been there. And we always pick up...right where we left off. One week, one year, one decade. She is a true friend.

TiNille recently came to visit me from her home in California. We had a wonderful weekend making new memories and reliving old ones. I will never forget your kindness and love, TiNi. ❤️

I hope this coin brings her happiness and memories of our friendship. And I hope someday, she will pass it on and do something kind for another human.

Be good to eachother. Be kind. Love your fellow humans. If you find yourself in a position to help another...pay for their gas/groceries/diapers/etc. You never know when you may be in a position of needing something someday. If you are, hopefully someone will be there to help YOU out.

p.s. Always say "I love you!"

Received in Pismo Beach from a client in Utah. Save the monarchs, plant milkweed and pollinator plants. www.caterpillarchow.com

This coin got to my hands from someone very special... Someone with great, kind heart, who made a major difference in my life. She helped me with opening up and seeing world and myself through different perspective. We shared our stories about Blue Butterfly...
I am forever grateful to this beautiful person and will hold her in my thoughts and heart forever....

Received this meaningful coin from dear friends that I happened to meet by chance through our mutual love of dogs. I have had this coin for three years and it has helped and guided me through some hard times that life throws your way.
I am passing it on so that this 'butterfly' may help others who are always kind in heart. Thank you.

So, my Mawmaw got it for me before I left and moved with my family to Washington State. I love you Mawmaw

It is now January 2023 and I have to move again. This time I am moving to Flint, MI with my little sister and brother and my biological mother. The move is set to happen anytime between the last week of January and the first week of February.

I moved to Tecumseh, MI, in my uncles apartment. We were working on getting Mom here as well, but in 2021, she passed away to Covid related symptoms.

We moved in with my best friend and his wife at Marshfield, but it wouldn't last long, around christmas that same year, I had to move to Michigan with my uncle to get her and myself closer to family.

I was living in Lebanon at the time, taking care of my mother (She was actually my grandmother but she raised me since I was 6 months old, so I call her my mother). After she broke her ankle and dad (Same story as my mother) passed away, things were getting tight. In 2020 moved.

I got this coin during church, it was called Freedom, back in 2018 in Conway, MO. I have had this coin since and I haven't gotten a chance to pass it on and I completely forgot about with everything that was happening at the time.

My name is Sky Parriott and I received a Butterfly Coin from my friend Doug.

Give to my beautiful butterfly friend, Wendy, on her 50th birthday.

I received this coin from a coworker, who was instructed to give to me so I could give it to my husband by one of his former coworkers (lol)

received as a Christmas 2022 gift in Ithaca NY.

Our friend Debbie Dick gave us this at Christmas!
Thank you Deb! We'll pass ot on!

Correct location..

Passing it along to my friend Tarek , wishing him a Happy New Year 2023, and all the best for the next year and many years after.

Try to not lose this coin , because this is your second.

Talk soon

Gave this coin to Deb and she kindly passed it back with our lovely Christmas gift, I will pass it on at the food bank when I drop the generous donation that people made, thank you lymoon, Ravi, joanne

I've held on to this coin long enough and have found the perfect person to pass it on to. During the pandemic Bitsy D. was one of many Zumba instructors to teach via social media but Bitsy choose to teach on zoom free of charge to all of her students. But now that "lockdown" has been over for quite some time she not only has her home life, her work life, teaching Zumba at a health facility, she is one of the only instructors I know that continues to teach over Zoom and it's still free to all her students. And that's just one of the many acts of kindness Bitsy has done.

Received my coin as a Christmas present from my sister Deb. I think Deb and myself will "Be the Good" together, coming up with ideas of how to do this the best. Once we decide on what we are going to do, I will come back and update this story. Some choices are: helping a homeless person or helping a low income elderly person.

Some kind stranger gave it to me. I'm so happy!!

I got this coin from a friend a couple of years ago. Just came across it. Looking forward to passing it on!

I just bought this coin from a thrift store. I love butterflies and they are one of my spirit animals. I saw this coin and I thought it was so cute and I love the name of the butterfly effect. One small thing can make such a big effect on us. That’s the butterfly effect. I love to give back I had to get it. I’m not sure yet who I’m going to pass it to next but it will be someone who has a good spirit as well. I love to give back and help the world that’s why we’re here. Always remember to do good and be the light. Butterflies are so beautiful I remember this story. Everyone in the world can see a butterflies wings but Itself. The whole world gets to enjoy its beauty but then. Imagine you can’t even see your own beauty in yourself that the world sees. But it still continues to carry on. You have such a impact on this world

My name is Maddie.
My friends band Oceans End made a music video, memories and art here and found this coin. Remember life isnt out to get you, and that life is worth living even when it gives you no immediate reasons. Never give up on your dreams.

Wow!! This has been is my car for a very long time! I just found it and gifted to the sweet man who filled my tires with air 😋

My sister gifted me this coin as I’m going thru breast cancer and the healing process. Her kindness and generous spirit has continued to inspire me and remind me when we may be feeling our worst we can still be a blessing to someone else ❤️🦋

Found this coin with a $20 gift card. Perfect cause I recently lost my job and I was unable to buy my cat food. Going to get cat food now, so happy

Location is actually San Simeon, CA. Coin 27vt-7xz. I couldn't correct it.
I forgot to mention that I was honored to know Mareyna's godmother. She was one of the loveliest, kindest, sweetest, most spiritual and compassionate angels you could ever know. A great loss for those of us left behind.

This coin has not traveled far. It is in the same small town of Cambria, CA. I received it nearly two years ago from my sweet friend and "Fairy Goddaughter" Reyna after my dear, devoted father, Robert Louis Mayer, died. I happen to know the sweet man who started this coin rolling, her "birth-brother" and it is exactly like him to constantly reach out. Both of them are huge-hearted humans.

My father died alone on January 15, 2021. In a quarantined Kaiser hospital in Panorama City, Southern California, of Pneumonia, Congestive Heart failure, Renal failure and Covid-19.
---- Days before he died, and days after, my mom had some episodes of irrational behavior. Her memory loss, suddenly much worse, was found to be Alzheimers disease months later. She needed a memory-care facility. My sister and dear sister-in-law found a great facility near their homes, 6 to 7 hours away from me. We had to move mom. It was devastating. I felt like a traitor abandoning my dear, giving, exceptional and saintly mother. I am not kidding, look up her obituary I wrote on Legacy.com Margaret Regina (McGowan) Mayer. We also had to let go of the family home of 60 years. It took my sister and I five months before our siblings helped us. Every month we sorted through mountains of things, tens of thousands of papers, photos, etcetera. Donating countless things. I visited mom as often as I could, called every day, wrote every few days. It was very hard. Covid-19 kept her friends from visiting. My siblings gave her frequent phonecalls and visits, packages of goodies, shopping sprees, lunches out whenever possible. When she was sad or frustrated, it was devastating for my sister and I especially. She died on St. Patrick's day this year, 14 months after our father. I am still picking up the pieces, as I ignored my own life for three years helping my/our parents. I cry more easily now, but have caring family and dear friends/extended family. I know that I did everything I could to help and comfort my parents. And, obviously, dear souls in my life have comforted me. I am blessed and grateful.

Love each other, embrace your family, friends, and even strangers if you can. One smile, hug, handshake, and/or kind word and gesture can brighten someone's day or save a life. Their value is beyond measurement and they are healing to the spirit and the soul.
LOVE, LOVE. LOVE.
TimothyEdwardMayer

2nd coin left at Wanderoo Lodge in Eureka Springs, Ar.

I am leaving this coin anonymously with a small gift just to brighten someone's day. I hope that they will pass on a good deed or a kind word because small acts of kindness are never really small.

My co-worker gave me this coin when met, in person due to Covid and regional restrictions, for the first time at a work conference. On that particular day I'd had a rough start with my printer and getting to work equipped and on time. I slipped in for the start of a working lunch session, late and a bit ashamed, and she said here I have something for you. I was surprised and the timing of the gesture was really nice. Working with the military made me immediately identify the beautiful coining as a kind gesture even though I wasn't sure what it was. I actually think I teared up a bit.

I kind of forgot about this for a while and recently my family's moved through a half dozen temporary housing situations this fall trying to save to buy a house again so we don't have to keep uprooting our family in this unstable rental market. It's been really rough and somehow in the midst of living out of suitcases for the last five months this coin has resurface right after our whole 5 person family stayed with my cousin for two weeks when a pipe broke in the RV we were staying in.
We're in an apt now for the winter and I'm putting together Christmas gifts. I wanted to give my cousin a special gift this year after her graciousness to us. She so freely offered for us to crowd the hell out of her with little notice. She just so happens to love butterflies too so I'm tucking this into her gift basket.

Received as a prize in a contest related to Monarch butterflies. It was sent to me from Austin, Texas!

This coin was given to me by my husband’s cousin in honor of her mother who recently passed away. Her mom was the most cheerful, enthusiastic and kind person you ever met! I am passing this on in the hope that her attributes will manifest in a person who needs some encouragement in their life at this time.

In memory of Ian Bassett- a man filled to the brim with kindness. May this Butterfly coin travel amongst kind people and bring many smiles along the way. He would have liked that. Given with love from his friends, may the journey continue Ian. Fliss, Zola - Bee and Ivan. xxx

This coin was “set free” in March 2022. It was gifted to Allison H. At Covenant Presbyterian Church. Allison got a new Taylor Guitar, & I surprised her with a mother of pearl Truss cover for it. She is such a blessing to so many people & she simply glows when she’s playing her guitar.
I gave her the butterfly coin & asked her to pay it forward.
Be blessed!!
