Symbolic Meaning of the Gold Coin

Alchemically, gold is a symbol of transformation. The ultimate human quest, say the alchemists, is to transform the darker emotions into love, compassion, and joy. This journey is beautifully described by the metaphor of the philosopher’s stone. At first deemed unfit to be used in any part of the building, it becomes the keystone, the cornerstone, and the most valuable piece of the structure. Similarly, the parts of ourselves that we at first reject turns into the most holy, most sacred, and most essential part of our being. Indeed, this is the supreme achievement of spiritual transformation, the process of turning lead into gold.

Gold is symbolic for this sort of spiritual wealth and abundance. And this kind of gold is endless in supply! What spiritual gold do you possess?
