Climbing Coin

Climbing Coin


A very simple but baffling little trick!

The Chinese coin has a hole in the middle. When threaded on a piece of elastic, it will climb up the slope.

But how can a coin climb against gravity? And up such a steep slope? Is it anything to do with Feng Shui?

Could this be a good way to get free drinks, by having a bet with someone that you can make a coin go uphill?
