Here's a thought experiment: since cigarettes aren't that popular: roll up a dollar bill around two cylindrical magnets. Glue all. Cut it in half where the magnets join. Show this and use it as the thing that penetrates the borrowed coin.

You're probably thinking of John Kennedy's Cigarette through any Coin. According to Google you can find one here:
