Those coins remind me of Imbas Forosnai (Fire in the head) one of the ancient methods of calirvoyance by inspiration

Searles O'dubhain defines it well http://www.summerlands.com/crossroads/l ... enimba.htm
Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68)
