Stack Flipup (198k)
Place a stack of 10 or more coins on a table. Slide the top one back half of its diameter. Flip it up using the above method so that it rotates 360º in the air and lands back on the stack. To help make sure the coin doesnt fall of the stack when it lands you can give it a quick tap with a finger just as it lands. This helps to prevent it slip of the edge of the stack in case the flip wasnt prefectly accurate.
