When harvesting crops, farmers wil bury a gold coin in their fields. If they do not, the (false) superstition is that the next year's crop will be less productive. It's bad luck for the crops if a coin is unearthed and taken in future years.
This belief is held by farmers who believe that when something is tkaen from the land, something must be given back. For a farmer, this gold coin represents about 5% of the monetary value of the respective crop harvest. Fields that have been owned by a farming family for many generations may have hundreds of these coins accumulated.
