    As long as you’re not defacing it in order to defraud the government, it’s not illegal. Bre’s Coin Ring video podcast talks about this:

    I was wondering the same(I´m honduran) and it actually caught me off guard to see a coin of 20 cents turned into a button! :D
    I don’t think it’s illegal, I’ve seen coins on sooo many things over the years… bracelets, necklaces, wooden boxes…
