Significance of Keeping Silver Coin of Goddess Laxmi
Silver Coins with images of Goddess Lakshmi and Ganesha embossed on them are kept by many Hindus in their home. The significance behind this ritual is to attract the blessing of Ganesha, Lakshmi and Navagraha Shukra. It is believed that a person who has the blessing of the three deities will never suffer financial problems.
Some coins have Goddess Lakshmi engraved on one side and Ganesha on another side. There are also coins engraved with the picture of the same deity on both sides.
The coin is brought home only on Friday. It should be washed properly in running water.
It is then placed in the puja room or worship place before the picture of Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi.
After evening arati the coin is removed and in its place seven small remuneration coins like that of 25 paise or 50 paise or 1 rupee is kept.
The silver coins are placed in a safe place in the northeastern direction.
