Foreign body in ear, nose and throat is commonly encountered in otorhinolaryngology practice. Among which coin in the throat is the common foreign body seen but rarely multiple coin swallowing may occur and if present they may get impacted at different locations. We report a 10-year-old with history of coin ingestion but detailed analysis of x-ray and retrospective history confirmed it to be multiple coins. The emergency rigid esophagoscopy was undertaken and 2 coins impacted at the same place were successfully removed.
