I had seen this post quite a while ago. I just got a Modern Canadian dime that was caught between the rotating drum and the chassis and just looked slightly reduced in size but the rim built up a little bit. I could hear something odd when the dryer was rotating, but didn't know what it was. I finally saw the dime caught between the rubber and the drum and fished it it. It never banged against anything ... it was just getting worn away by the drum.

Very interesting...this backs up the idea shown on the first page of this thread that coins can get trapped and roll around the drum.

Not all dryer coins have the rims flattened.

Did you pull this one out from between the tubs of a commercial dryer or washing machine?

Thanks for that link jbuck.

I see that in that thread all that is made is a statement by the OP saying it is a dryer coin. This is at the end of the thread after everyone told him it was just a typically damaged/ground down coin.

The physics of this being tumbled between the metal tubs of a washer or dryer is not evident.

Most home machines are no longer two metal tubs, and I don't know what a coin being tumbled between plastic and metal would look like though.

Think commercial dryers at laundromats. I've known a teller for years, working at a branch that happens to serve a couple commercial laundromats. Occasionally, owner/operators come in to deposit/exchange coins from their business. Some of the coins exhibit strong dryer coin characteristics. These coins are typically discovered when then dryers are opened up for maintenance--the coins are found in the inner workings, with some showing signs of 'being in there' for long periods of time.

dryer coin? 1944 Philippines 50 centavos
I found this in my parents' "penny jar" back in the 60s, and always thought that it had been hammered. But after reading this excellent thread by Earl42, I'm inclined to think it is a dryer coin. And yes, I had to acquired another one for comparison purposes, because coins!
By the way, my grandfather operated a dry cleaner in a small town from the '40s through the '70s. He had gathered more small pen knives and such than you would imagine.

Thanks for posting.

I don't remember seeing a non-US dryer coin before.
