It's supposed to be a silver coin for good luck, when giving a purse or wallet as a gift.

There is a tradition of taking a piece of straw from the baby Jesus manger in the church and placing it in your purse.

I have never had a purse or handbag given to me with a coin in. Why would you want to put a coin in it? For good luck?

If so, i would put a shiny new penny as that is the epitome of luck.

Pass, some superstition about if you give an empty purse it is bad luck and if you place a coin into it means it will never be empty. Doesn't say if it matters what type of coin though. Just before I wrap it up!

I think you are supposed to put a quality Street wrapper in it but it has to be a purple one.

Thanks, although she is not religious so might ponder why a bit of straw.

I see. I have never heard of that one. I would prefer a shiny new penny if it had a coin in it. Personally, i would be very puzzled if it had any other coin in it as it wouldnt make sense to me at all.

Yea had a new wallet once given to me and had no coin in it, since I've been married I've never had money in it. superstition .....no reality.

happy Christmas all.

Only just finished wrapping my presents and forgot to do this.

Damn you to hell. (I'm not unwrapping it might just stick it to the outside)

Whenever I've been handed a purse and I had chance to stop running it was always full of cash, cards, make up, and other useless crap that's no good to me...
