Creative expression is a beautiful thing.
For example, it’s illegal to deface U.S. currency for use as an artistic medium of expression, though the law typically looks the other way.
We see examples of currency destruction all the time. Don’t you recall seeing those penny machines at amusement parks and popular tourist destination that will transform your coin into memorabilia?
As long as people aren’t attempting to alter coins and pass them off as legitimate currency, there aren’t any real consequences. It’s only “kind of” illegal.
In the video above, you’ll see a tutorial on how to turn a quarter into a ring — double sided ones! We have to admit, this is pretty damn neat.
