Suit of coins

Three of Coins from the 1JJ Tarot pack

The Suit of Coins is one of the four suits used in Latin suited playing cards, such as Spanish, Italian and tarot decks. It corresponds to the Suit of Diamonds in standard decks.

In occult uses of tarot, Coins is considered part of the "Minor Arcana", and may alternately be known as "Pentacles", though this has no basis in its original use for card games.[1] Like the other tarot suits, it contains fourteen cards: ace (one), two through ten, page, knight, queen and king.
