    when you do drill the holes drill them very slow or you'll break the bit in half, any drill will work as long as it's a multiple speed drill

      Dot, also, use a cutting oil to lubricate the bit, and use a punch to set a pilot hole so the bit doesn't skip around.

        I think it's against the law to do that, but I won't tell on ya! lol

            It's not against the law. The only time it's against the law in the US is when you alter a "US" coin for fraudulent purposes. It's not a US coin and it's not a fraudulent purpose.

              You can legally drive a nail through a coin, paint it , melt it, or bend it into a pretzel - but the moment you try and use that coin as currency, you're breaking the law. You can sell that altered coin as a collectible, but you can't use it to buy a Snickers. You can gold-plate your cent-less V-nickel, but you can't pass it with the intention of making the clerk think it's a gold piece.
