Step 1: Supplies
you will need
piece of wire(about 2 cm) not in picture
pliers not in picture
wood or something else to nail into( helps if you have 2 large planks)in picture but to small
Step 2: Make a Dent
using the small nail make a dent using the hammer so the large now stays steady.
Step 3: Brute Force
use the large nail to start making the hole. you can also use something to hold it up so you can really whack it. after the dent is pretty deep put it between a space in two pieces of wood.
Another way. i was informed by a friend of another method to make the hole. this way is A LOT easier and faster. take a power drill and drill the hole out , then just continue on.
Step 4: I See the Light
after a while, a small crack will appear. flip the coin over and using the small nail make the hole bigger. after, use the large nail to make it even bigger.
Step 5: Wire It
make the hole large enough that the wire can fit through it. using a round object(pencil) for an open loop with the wire. put the wire through the hole and seal the loop with the pliers.
Step 6: String
put the string through the wire loop then tie the end to form a complete circle with the string.
Step 7: You're Done
now you have a nice necklace. Also this coin can no longer be used as currency.
