Do I need to be concerned at all? Are there any negative ramifications at all? I noticed her choking but then she swallowed. She is just upset because she wants her money back!

An xray definitely. You need to know that the penny is no longer in the esophagus. The penny can be straight up and down in the esophagus right now causing no problem at all. Coughing, gagging, crying can cause the penny to shift or flip and form a blockage. You want to know that the penny is not in the airway and will not cause an obstruction.
