This photo was taken from a tower on a hill , in the background is the city San-Francisco.
you can see that people throw coins for probably a good luck out of the window.

Her name is Coit Tower .
Funny name Hey ?As any tour guide will tell you with a sly wink, Lilly Hitchcock Coit, the woman whose money made the tower possible, really had a thing for the firemen who were often found at her mansion. As a tribute to the men who tried to save San Francisco in 1906, Lilly designated that her legacy be used for the beautification of her beloved city. ( source : sanfrancisco.citysearch.com )
This tower was also the scene of the movie DIRTY Harry starring Clint eastwood where the evil Scorpio met Harry Callaghan at the foot of the tower in the middle of the night.
Throwing coins would be dangerous for the pedestrians below. This is probably why they are left there.....
Come on! Make my Day Punk! ( Lol!)
Have a nice day!
