Coins laid on a flat surface can become a problem to a lot of people. The lighting needs to be directly overhead and so does the camera. What you need is a light splitter. A lot of time can be spent making one or you canspend a lot of money buying one. But if you get a mate to hold a piece of plain glass at an angel of 45degrees ffom the table and place your coins under the glass. then shine the light throug the angel of the glass you will find that the glass splits the light.some light will go straight through the glass but about 50% will be directed downwards. You can then capture the image from directly overhead. Nice lighting little shaddows, Job done.
Ihope that this helps.
