These Coins Have Hidden Booby Traps And Secret Levers


Russian artist Roman Booteen creates tantalizing coins filled with mystery and traps and we can’t get enough of them.

Booteen carefully carves each “Hobo Nickel” out of a silver U.S. dollar and/or a Morgan dollar to create a custom engraved coin with secret doors and jaw and gold traps. Perhaps removing a knight’s sword from the coin or reaching for the gold isn’t as innocent as it looks though Booteen says you have nothing to worry about; the traps aren’t strong enough to cause any harm.

If you care to get your hands on some of the enticing coins, Booteen is known for listing them on eBay where they’ve easily sold for as much as $10,000.
