Introduction: 2.02 Euro

Hello,

Today i got bored and before i knew, i had this special coin. It is easy and fun to make. It has no practical application but it is a good conversation starter.

Step 1: The Swap

First, you will have to remove the center part. This can be done with a hammer and a chisel: place the coin so that there is some space under the center part, now give it a good tap and the center will come out.

Now the 2 euro is dismantled, lay the 2 cent coin on the ring and give it a tap with the hammer. The special coin is now finished.

If you did the process carefully, it is possible to get your 2 euros back.

this is the easiest to do with pre 2001 French euro's. The metal rings were not properly interlocked due to their pattern on the national side.

I heard, that it is quite easy to remove the center of the 1 and 2 € coins, if you cool them down with dry ice or liquid nitrogen before hammering on them...
