Hi..  Give him plenty of fluid, fruits and wait.. See a doctor if he develops symptoms such as pain.. Most often the coin would be excreted in the stool in  couple of days..

Welcome to healthcare magic.

You have to observe for any symptoms of gastrointestinal obstruction. Look for abdomen if it is distended and if she has any difficulty in passing stools or bleeding during passing stools please consult general surgeon.

Take care.
