Use 1/2 c. warm water plus the 1 tsp. sugar to start the yeast. Let this rise. Mix together the yogurt and the mineral water. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients as for bread. Knead on a floured surface for 10 minutes. When done, let the dough rise under a clean cloth. Spread dough with a rolling pin to about 1/4 to 1/3 inch thickness into a rectangle. Spread top with softened butter. Place a coin on the bread. Fold one side of the bread over and then the other. Brush the top with egg yolk. Bake at 350 degree oven for 45-55 minutes on a greased and floured pan.

*Coin: If silver coin is placed in bread, use as is. If not silver, wrap coin in foil first.
Each person breaks off a piece of bread. The one who gets the coin is to have good luck.
