    In Two Up in Austrailia we paint a cross on the tail of the coin.

    Hitting things, roof, floor, lights, will cause very slight bends or dents. These could affect the 'evenness' of the coin. These coins get tossed 100's of times a day.

    (Even if I can't type it correctly)

    hmmm... wait a minute...

    supposing a coin regardless of bendage has two most likely states of physical equlibrium... [both sides]... what alterations to the coin would favor certain states?
