Kapag Nakita Niyo Ang Mga Barya Sa Isang Puntod Ay Wag Na Wag Niyong Gagalawin. Baka Ito Ang Mangyari Sa Inyo!


Was there a time that you walked in a cemetery and saw a coin on top of a tombstone? It’s not unusual while visiting a cemetery to see the stones with coins on it. So what’s that all about? Let us find out here!

Dave Malenfant who works at Holly, Michigan’s National Military Cemetery conducted a research as to why many visitors leave coins on top of a gravestone.

According to legend, the coins belong on the gravestones of U.S. military veterans. Visitors who wish to show their respect leave coins on the headstones in different amounts. Coins are left on tombstones as a sign of respect to the fallen soldier. They show the service member’s family that someone stopped by to pay their respects.


There is no definite date on when the tradition started. Each coin has a different meaning, and the appropriate type is left on the grave depending on the relationship between the deceased service member and the person leaving the coin. The coins act as a comfort for the family when they see how many people stopped by the grave site.



A penny simply means that someone visited the grave to pay their respects. Nickels show that the person who left the coin trained or was at boot camp with the deceased service member.




A dime suggests you served with him or her. Finally, a quarter signifies you were the soldier when they passed away.

The origin of the tradition, like the meaning behind it, is still up for debate. It is said that this tradition became popular around the time of the second world war. It was used as a way of paying respects without directly contacting the deceased’s family.
