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.

... 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.
