It’s A Coin With A Moving Hand!

Well, sort of. Russian artist Roman Booteen modified a 1921 U.S. dollar coin to feature a glove, a sword, and a surprising mechanism. His carving on the coin is exceptional, as the coin now features a metal armor glove with decorative, hand-engraved details. The additional charm in this piece of art is from a hidden mechanism when a hidden button is pressed, as My Modern Met detailed: 

The glove is holding onto a sword that seems to be plunged into the side of the coin. The piece is already impressive as a still sculpture; however, once the hidden button on the outer edge of the coin is pressed, the metal components come to life. An integrated spring allows the fingers of the glove to move, as if it’s gasping the sword’s handle.
