Lucky Silver Dime

Silver Dime: Protection against conjure and assurance of luck in money matters.

In folk magic, images of money are often used in spells to draw more money or a "lucky" coin is carried to attract finanacial good fortune. The near-universal use of this symbolism one includes the money bag charm, found in cultures as diverse as China, Europe, and the United States. Silver coins have been popular in European magic rituals from Medieval times onward.

Encased coins, rolled coins, and specially-made good luck tokens are carried as lucky pocket pieces in many parts of the world, but in the United States, when it comes to standard-issue money, tradition dictates that the luckiest greenback is the rare $2.00 bill, and the luckiest coin is the silver dime.

The little "LUCKY Dime Register Bank" shown here is only 2 1/2 inches square and about half an inch high, but it counts your dimes as you drop them in, all the way up to $5.00. It probably dates from the 1930s.
