You do realise that coins are some the the dirtiest objects in the world?

Cool intructable! You can also do this with any plastic card you happen
to have in your wallet (think of customer loyalty cards, credit cards
etc.) I thought of this when I was in Madrid a couple of years back and
found myself with a wedge of water melon, but without a knife.
