Four of Coins

A crowned, robed figure sits in front of a walled city. He holds one coin and another three sit at his feet. A basket is beside him, and in the background some mounted ladies meet at a gate. He holds a book open on his lap.

My Interpretation: As if by magic.

This is a card of wealth, or at least a windfall - but be suspicious of materialism. Monetary gain at the expense of others may lead to emotional bankruptcy, and inheritance often involves the loss of a loved one. Greed or shortsightedness may mean a loss of all gained - so take care not to lose sight of that which is truly important.

(Reversed: Financial misfortune, failure when tested)

Edit notes: Maybe my interpretation of this card is too negative because of my own distrust of materialism - I should consider a more traditionally positive interpretation of the materialist meaning of this card. The pic at least is quite happy :^)

By the way is it just me, or does that character look just like Queen Elizabeth II?

I've changed images from my v1.0 version to suit Rider Waite readers more.
