im from New Zealand and all our smaller coins are magnetic and i also believe England coins work too.

I tried with a NZ 50c balancing on a 10c

Cool!!! Did it work?

american bills go best.

nice. so you leave the magnet there and take pictures not showing them?

It's in the text:

"Heres the tricky part, now you will have to gently pull the coins off
the magnet making sure not to make any sudden movements or else they
could tumble"

The coins are lightly magnetized, but while the coin touching the rim of the glass seems to rest on one of its notches, I'd think it still takes a very steady hand to get the coins to balance :)

DEEJAY642 (author)  Omnivent3 years ago

have you watched the video because that only took me a matter of seconds to balance the 2 coins

Ahaaa. I didn't until now. If people see the magnet stack, how can they be amazed?

I once had a pen that stood upright the same way in aholder where the magnets were hidden; one in the pen and another at a little "roof" over it. You could make such a holder, masked as an overgrown coaster. Perhaps add a LED to light up your drink and the coins - would explain the "roof" and add eye catching effect :)

shut up!!! stop telling lies!!!

DEEJAY642 (author)  Omnivent3 years ago

you can also slowly remove the magnets and get the coins to balance on their own!!!! thats very amazing!!!!!!!

DEEJAY642 (author)  Omnivent3 years ago

whats your point????????? also encouraging comments only

Don't get bent out of shape DEEJAY642. It's obvious Omnivent IS trying to help and ENCOURAGE by telling you of what he saw and telling you about other options to make the trick better. Like so you can take a picture of the whole thing and make it look more believable. Also, I think what you did was awesome and sharing it with us was great because it made me curious so I had to come and see. At the same time, this is what instructables are for, so others could help make the trick or project happen in different ways. Besides, it takes a big person to welcome and try others' ideas. Nice ible either way.

DEEJAY642 (author)  Omnivent3 years ago

thanks for the comment. Yes i know, i was in a rush and that was the easiest way but here is a picture of it not in the notch. In the second photo it looks like it but if you study it closely you will see that the notch is a tiny bit off to one side.
