Foreign bodies in the gastrointestinal tract are common in the pediatric age group and coins account for the majority. Most coins after passing through the esophagus will eventually leave the stomach and pass through the gastrointestinal tract without obstruction. We report a case of impacted Rs 2 coin in the duodenal bulb in a 9 years old boy which was in that position for 5 months and was retrieved endoscopically.
