It is a very common good luck superstition that says that when an angel is missing you, then she throws down a penny from the heavens. These pennies are generally found at very odd and unusual places where one had least expectations to find one. These pennies or coins are said to have been kept by angels or our loved ones. It might be also possible that they have been kept there by spirit guides or animals too.

It depends upon our personal belief as to what we think that the penny came from. One thing is certain that it does not matter from where the penny comes; the only thing which matters is that the penny is especially meant for you; having a personal significance solely for you. That’s a very welcome good luck charm you cannot overlook.


So, don’t pass by that penny, When you’re feeling blue. It may be a penny from heaven, that an Angel’s tossed to you
– Charles Marshburn
