Can a coin, traveling fast enough, pierce through your body and kill you?

Physics and such - because it is metal however has a blunt-like edge. Would it kill you?

If it hit in the right place it would. My 5th grade teacher was from the mid-west where they have terrible hurricanes. She said that she had seen the wind blow a straw into the trunk of a tree with the force it had. Probably doesn't happen often, but once would be enough!

If fast enough, sure, but at terminal velocity as in dropped from a building, no. Mythbusters did this one.
