Popping/clicking nickel?

I have a nickel that makes a popping/clicking sound when you press in on it. I’m assuming someone made the nickel into a fidget toy of sorts. I can’t find anything like it online. Anyone have any info about it?

It is a joke squirting nickel. There is a tiny hole in the middle of the "O" in the word "OF."

Press in on the metal part, hold the coin under water, and release. It will draw water into the chamber. Then tell someone, "look at this hole in this coin," or something similar. When they put their face close to it to see the hole, give it a squeeze, and water will squirt out in their face.

That is too cool.  I have to find (or make) one of these.  

I have found "Magicians Coins" before in bank rolls.  They were Kennedy Half's.  I really thought I'd found a very underweight Kennedy until I got to researching it and then discovered what I had.  It too made a clicking noise because the Obverse was basically the thin shell side of the coin with a very small gap in-between the front and back of the coin.  Still pretty neat though.

Thank you so much, I looked closer and noticed the hole. I got water into it and it squirted out, very cool. 
Thanks again
