How do i use it? --------------------------------
Worry coins are basic in nature and so is its purpose. The can simply be used by rubbing the grooves of the coin, all the way up to fancy tricks.
Most common of these tricks is the "coin roll" where you roll the coin over the top of your fingers, and then catch it with your pinkie. It then get slid under the hand back to the index so as to start the trick again.
Another lot of examples, is the tricks that poker players use to put off their opponents. These tricks are essentially the same, as the poker chip is relatively similar in size.
What is a Worry Coin? --------------------------------
No one know exactly where or when it originated, but we do know of the oldest documented reasons. This reason is known as a Challenge coin, wich along with Worry coin has many other names; lucky coin, pocket token, membership token, and many more.
Just like a worry coin, a challenge coin i normally kept with the person most of the time. This is in modern day normally associated with clubs, secret societies, military factions, as well as survivors or sober addicts.
Just like modern day soldiers, one of the oldest origins of the worry coin was back in ancient roman times. Back when soldiers or platoons where successful in a mission, they were given an extra coin/s along with their normal pay. This lead to certain soldiers carrying this extra coin as they believed it to be lucky or a badge of their courage. Eventually this lead to the commanding officers crafting a special coin specific for his platoon, meaning that the coin was even more special to that soldier.
Go forward a bit in time to the Vietnam war, Soldiers would carry a small pistol bullet with them as a "last resort" if captured. Eventually this lead to them trying to show how macho they were, with some men carrying large 50cal sniper rifle rounds.
This where the name "challenge coin" came from. After a long day at war, soldiers would retire at the bar which lead to them "challenging" each other. This challenge came in the way of slamming your "last resort" bullet on the bench as fast as you can, with the slowest person having to buy the next round. Ranking officers couldn't have their soldiers slamming live ammunition on a bar, especially when alcohol is involved! So they started to create a badge/coin specific to that team.
This practice is still carried on today, with even people like the presidents having their own special coin tailored to them. This is normally given out discreetly in the form of a handshake, to thank people and soldiers for their bravery and service.
