The US penny (and the US nickel as well) have had higher melt values than face values recently, so the government had to ban melting of pennies and nickels to keep the supply sufficient (it costs more than face value to make each one now).

The ban is more to keep them from being melted and sold for profit than to eliminate defacement.

It is still in effect.

illegal if one "fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates, impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales or lightens" any U.S. coin. However, being a criminal statute, a fraudulent intent is required for violation. Thus, the mere act of compressing coins into souvenirs is not illegal. So actually drilling the hole is not illegal. This came from a letter of the treasury.

Like feeding ducks in my city. Or feeding squirrels. It is illegal but no one has ever been ticketed or arrested for doing it.

I thought about typing that out as well, But the larger hole was on the back of his skull.

to the people saying that's illegal:   
yes it is technically "illegal" to deface/destroy currency, but you probably won't be charged with anything unless you damage large amounts of money, or you try to spend it after you damaged it   
   
besides if there was anything to worry about, those machines you find at theme parks/museums that squash your penny or quarter into a shape with a picture on it would be outlawed

Fun fact, if a bullet goes straight between the hemisphere's of the brain with out doing any damage to anything but the skull, there is a chance the victim can survive.

People suggest laws like that just to make sure the public is listening. Judging by the fact there's a list of dumb-ass laws like that with over a thousand entries...they usually aren't.

I'm pretty sure those don't use the same penny you put in, they use a different penny that was removed from circulation.

Nah, it has a handcrank that flattens the penny and imprints something on it. Then the penny comes out.

The process of creating elongated coins is legal in the United States, almost all parts of Japan, South Africa and parts of Europe. In the United States, U.S. Code Title 18, Chapter 17, Section 331 prohibits "the mutilation, diminution and falsification of United States coinage." The foregoing statute, however, does not prohibit the mutilation of coins, if the mutilated coins are not used fraudulently, i.e., with the intention of creating counterfeit coinage or profiting from the base metal (the pre-1982 copper U.S. cent which, as of 2010, is worth more than one cent in the United States). Because elongated coins are made mainly as souvenirs, mutilation for this purpose is legal, when location of the coin presser has the permit from the mint to do so.
