The buffalo nickel coin was minted using soft metal & was imprinted with the portrait of an indian with bold features, making it easier to deface & transform into the portraits of other people, animals, or even scenery. Hobos at the turn of the 20th century often carved and traded the coins hence the name... Now many modern artists still carry on the tradition of carving these coins. I like the more traditional portrait mutation concept rather complete transformation of the coin something else

“Hobo Nickels” - First carved in 1913, the heyday of hobo nickels was back in the 1930s, used as a way to pass the time during the Great Depression. Some of the original coins still exist today, while the practice itself has survived into modern times; ironically making some nickels worth hundreds of dollars.

Crazy Skull Art | Skull Nickels by Christopher Jobson on September 4, 2011
Hobo nickels: although the history of carving miniature bas relief sculptures into coins goes a way back, it was greatly popularized in the early 20th century with the Buffalo nickel. This particular coin was minted using soft metal, making it easier to deface and transform the original into the portraits of other people, animals, or even scenery. Add to that the idle hands of unemployed artists during the depression and soon a flood of curious treasures were born.
