    I wrap it in a soft cloth, put it into a vise edgewise with a plastic bucket underneath with a towel in it, and gradually crank down until I hear it crack. Then I look to see if it's cracked enough to break it the rest of the way by hand and if not, then have another go in the vise.

    You'll destroy the slab, just don't harm the coin in any way, shape or form.
