Apparently, balancing coins in a single dime is a big deal. And one that will get your name in the record books. Record setting website RecordSetter holds the record for balancing most coins on a single dime. As in, the winner Tai Star managed to arrange some 3,118 coins on a single dime. He made use of 600 quarters, 501 dimes, 313 nickles, 1,699 pennies, and five foreign coins to create a tornado like shape hollow at the center and sturdy enough to be stable on the tiny dime.
