Am I crazy? I don’t know,
By many names I often go:
Morning Tear or Budding Bird,
These names in places have been heard.
Perhaps I’m of a minor race
Where color rains in foreign place.
A tiny country gets one name . . .
The first is Nothing, am I sane?
And if my name you beg of others,
Surely they will hand me over.
Into your life should me you bring,
A heavy curse comes with a ring!

:D

No. Not coin. I penned this riddle with the intention of letting you sharp riddle masters, who so quickly slayed my other ones meant for general audience, know that the edge is still there. This is a sticky wicket, but like all of mine, the road to the gold is within the riddle itself. If you can find and follow it to the answer, I tip my hat. Good luck! (Wow, over 70 views before a reply! How intriguing! :P )

No luck so far. But don't fear, there’s enough in the riddle for any savvy individual to work it out. Keep trying.
