5 Coins With Secret Messages And Their Meanings

Coins are a way for nations to convey their history, culture, and occasionally secret meanings. Nine intriguing coins from throughout the world have secret messages or symbols with unique meanings. These coins reveal the mysteries and stories of our cash.

US Dollar Coin with Eye of Providence

The Triangle Eye of Providence on the U.S. one-dollar coin is interesting. This symbol, featured on the reverse of the US Great Seal, is associated with Freemasonry and symbolises God's watchful eye over humanity. This insignia powerfully symbolises the nation's freedom and divine guidance values.

WWII Code and UK 2-Pound Coin

The British 2-pound coin recalls World War II with dots and dashes along its edge. This Morse code spells “1945,” the war's end. It honours the codebreakers who helped the Allies win in a subtle yet moving way.

The Canadian ‘Lucky Loonie’

Canadian ‘Loonies’ one-dollar coins often have a hidden loon (bird). A Loonie was buried under the ice during the 2002 Winter Olympics, where Canada won hockey gold, promoting the concept that this secret loon brings luck.

Australian Dollar with Secret Star

Australian one-dollar coins have a tiny five-pointed star buried in the queen's neckline. This star symbolises the Commonwealth and indirectly honours Australia's relationship with the British monarchy and the Commonwealth of Nations.

Euro and Athena Owl
