Since metal is a conductor of energy, our loved ones can easily use any metal to connect with us. That saying "Pennies are from heaven" is true. Many people also report finding dimes. I have one client who swears her father leaves her dimes everywhere that are either from 1937 (the year of his birth) or 1965 (the year of her birth). Mother-in-law used to joke, "When I die, I won't send you pennies. What can you do with a penny? I'll at least send you quarters." On the morning of my daughter's kindergarten graduation, there was a shiny quarter on the blanket tucked under my daughter's chin.
