"Phasing" a solid object through another solid object: Possible?

As with all deeply important scientific and philosophical questions, this one arose over a couple of beers with a friend.
He believes that one object (say, a coin) can pass through another object, (say, a table) but it's very improbable, the underlying idea being that the atoms that comprise said objects have to be aligned just so in order for it to work.
My understanding is that the electrons that bind the atoms together would have to be disrupted, which would likely result in the destruction of one or both objects.
Googling just brings up page after page of superhero information. Anyone out there have info or links that are a little less speculative?
