In Celtic Mythology, rainbow is a cosmological symbol. The bright bridge of colors that decks the sky after a rainstorm has drawn many legends to itself in Celtic lands, as in other cultures.

In Celtic areas of Germany the rainbow was believed to leave traces of gold wherever it touched the earth; the belief gave rise to the production of a coin with a slightly concave surface called a regenbo- genschusselchen (rainbow-coin), which was thought to have healing powers. In Ireland the Leprechaun or fairy shoemaker was similarly said to hide his gold at the end of a rainbow.
