  If a flipped coin landed on its edge it could not remain there. 
However, it could land nearly flat side down thereby transferring most 
its rotational energy as it bounced and use the remaining energy to 
right itself and possibly stabilize on its edge. Though possible, the 
odds of that occurring are extremely slim.
