I like the fact that the pentacles in the Gilded Tarot lack the pentagram symbol. It seems to me that the pentagram brings in connotations that I don't usually associate with pentacles in tarot.

The pentacles in this deck actually remind me of dinner plates, for some reason. Hmm, maybe plates to hold nature's bounty, ala the cornucopia?

I've also often wondered why pentacles are usually (and especially in this deck) so huge. I mean, look at the guy in the four of pents. He only has four and yet his arms are full! How do they carry them around? Banks must be popular in the Gilded universe! LOL
