"Hobo Nickel": Although the history of carving miniature bas relief sculptures into coins stretches back to the 18th century if not earlier, it was greatly popularized in the early 20th century with the introduction of the Buffalo nickel. This particular coin was minted using soft metal and was imprinted with the portrait of an indian with bold features, making it easier to deface and transform into the portraits of other people, animals, or even scenery.

In 1792, The Coinage Act created the Mint. "The primary mission of the United States Mint is to manufacture and distribute circulating coins, precious metals and collectible coins, and national medals to meet the needs of the United States" and "also maintains physical custody and protection of the Nation's gold and silver assets (...) The United States Mint operates six facilities across the United States" (http://1.usa.gov/JEklmO).
