Whimsy Souvenir Coin Masher
I've always been a sucker for those machines, found in truck stops and gift shops, that will, for fifty cents or a dollar, mash your penny into a souvenir.
I like this one a lot better:
I like it so much, in fact, that I kept it in mind when making a penny masher for Whimsy.
When you pay the machine $1L, the lever at the left stops with a clang (you can hear the penny dropping), wheels turn, and the press descends upon the penny...
... mashing it into your souvenir...
The newly-minted coin pops into the chute at the bottom of the machine...
.. and the machine gives you a copy.
When you wear the coin, your avatar gets a happy spinning animation:
You can get your souvenir coin here.
