Swallowed a Quarter?

Answer

In most cases, a swallowed quarter will reach the stomach without getting stuck. It will most likely continue along its journey via the digestive tract to the rectum, usually in four to six days. In case the coin is not 'passed' an x-ray will be conducted and the coin removed by using a tube called endoscope.
