Coin Plot Element

In the novel, Gabriela explains to Richard about the coins in her bracelet. She points out several, including a commemorative coin her son has suggested she place on her bracelet.
I got that idea from the French coins that I used every day.  In one instance, I got change back from my purchases and saw a very pretty coin, new to me.  So I started thinking and I added it to that section.
This is a picture of the coin in question:
