What a great image for the Ace of Coins. The putto at first appears to be holding up the coin, but when I looked closer it really seems more as if he is reaching upwards. The hands do not look like they are actually supporting it at all. The images contained within the coin all appear to be linked to sensual pleasures, food, jewels, music, dancing. With the bull comes a link to Taurus, also a sign linked to sensual pleasures. I wonder if the putto is blindfolded as a reminder that it is now what is seen but what is sensed. Maybe this card signifies a time of sensual pleasure and the need to reach towards our goals through engaging the senses.
