This year (5772) is the fourth year of the Shemitta cycle, and as such, this Pesach is the time of Biur Maaserot. Does anyone have suggestions (from experience or sources) regarding how to best dispose of one's Maaser Sheni coin?

Dump it in the dead sea. –  Eli Lansey Apr 5 '12 at 13:38
@EliLansey I imagine that's a little inconvenient for most people. –  Double AA Apr 5 '12 at 14:50
The question said nothing about convenient :-) Only the best. –  Eli Lansey Apr 5 '12 at 16:24
@Alex Consider Rambam M"Sh 11:8 נשארו אצלו פירות מעשר שני של ודאי, או נטע רבעי, או מעות פדייתן--הרי זה מבער אותן, ומשליך לים או שורף –  Double AA Apr 5 '12 at 23:45

I'm going to the Dead Sea tomorrow. Redeem your coin onto my coin (by adding your name to the comments of my blog http://rabbisedley.blogspot.com/2012/04/biur-maaser.html) and I'll be your shaliach for destroying maaser sheni.

This specific offer has expired, but the general approach of appointing an agent as sh'liach still applies.
