Some countries have laws against defacement or destruction of coins.

 

Here is an example from Philippines:

 

http://www.doj.gov.ph/bail_a2d1.html

 

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: )
