Factory melting Indian coins raided, 8 held


Recommended Posts

Some countries have laws against defacement or destruction of coins.


Here is an example from Philippines:




Mutilation, defacement or destruction of coins (Art. 164 as amended by PD 247) Not more than 5 years and/or fine not exceeding P20,000.00


In the US destruction is legal, mutilation is not (except for elongated cents :ninja: )
