When I first started studying The Tarot, I read that all Aces are gifts. So one would think that this Ace could portend forth coming money? Like Astrology with simple daily newspaper forecasts; there are those that reduce the meanings of the cards into bulk mundane interpretations.
This gentleman has earned or inherited his money and has invested in gold coins. Why? Maybe gold is considered a safe investment, but if the world goes dark what can you buy with gold when food, housing, clothing, candles, and chocolate are more valuable than gold. So it reminds me to work at something that is satisfying and fulfills me. Not to work just for the sake of working and acquiring money. Sure I need a roof over my head and the daily comforts of living, but do I need to think ahead to stockpiling cash? (Well maybe some)
Every year for the last ten years or so someone in Louisville, across the river from my vantage point, has placed a gold krugerrand in a Salvation Army kettle during the Christmas campaign. Someone invested and collected the gold coins and now is anonymously gifting. I guess that is one way to spend your gold.
