A dead person seen in a coffin is a dream that presages an accident.

If the person in the coffin seems to be alive, it is a portent that you will be slandered.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

Although at first sight it indicates the contrary, dreaming of a coffin is a good omen because it represents the end of a cycle and the beginning of another, as well as liberation from an oppressive situation. Looking at a coffin holding a person that you do not know or cannot see indicates you are getting rid of useless items.

If you know the person, this episode may be revealing your concern for their health.

The interpretation of this dream varies depending on the character that is occupying it. So, if it is your partner it predicts eternal fidelity; an infant announces pain without hope; your own mother, enemies willing to forgive offenses.

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

A symbol relating to death, a coffin in a dream indicates that some sort of a change is going on.

A coffin is made to hold a person after death. As a dream symbol, it should be interpreted by examining the individual inside the coffin as a character aspect of the dreamer. This applies whether you know who is inside the coffin or not. Any death is symbolic of change. When examined as a character aspect, the death represents sacrificing a portion of the personality that is no longer a useful part of the whole. An effective shift requires clearing out old ways of being in order to make way for new, more evolved functioning. Death is always followed by rebirth, but when a coffin is present, it signifies being at the beginning of the transformation process.

Should you dream of a well appointed coffin and it is empty then does this show that you will soon lose a close friend, (not necessarily through death, but rather, death of a friendship).
