  • Strictly speaking, the quarter is not the size of a dime. It is still the size of a quarter. It just isn't quite the *shape* of a quarter. Specifically, it's been shrunk in two dimensions, but it's much thicker the other way.

    There are probably numerous ways this can be accomplished, but the easiest and best known (assuming you want to preserve the engraved images in the shrunken form, as was done with the one in the picture) involves suddenly surrounding it with a very powerful magnetic field.
