The use of a glass coin in art can be used ironically or provocatively to prompt reflection on cultural values and social beliefs. Transforming a symbolic object of value like a glass coin can question cultural values that prize money and economic power. This can also suggest that the value of money is illusory and temporary. By using a material like glass, which is considered fragile and ephemeral, the artwork challenges viewers to consider the fragility of cultural values and beliefs.
