Coin Puzzles
Different puzzles with coins are very popular among all puzzle lovers. Using a few coins from your pocket or wallet, you can almost instantly prepare your favorite coin challenge to stump your friends in a leisure time. Mostly, these challenges have a nice pattern and an idea that can be easy explained, but not far all of them can be easy solved. There is some number of classic coin puzzles, but not too many compared to puzzles with matchsticks. Still their spectrum and number are slowly growing with every new coin puzzle which are created nowadays. Here I'd like to present some clever challenges with coins.
