reading that the tarot suit known as pentacles/coins/discs was also sometimes called "specchi"—mirrors—in 15th century italy, which is seriously making me reconsider my relationship with the cards in that suit

Is this the explanation for the famous "monkey looking into a mirror" card in the Venetian deck?

(Immortalized in the PD with "this book is a mirror: when a monkey looks in, no sage looks out!")

@aparrish ooooo, a literal shiny! *grabs a shiny coin and admires xer face in it*
