This record has GOTTA be an easy one to break:
The longest time a coin has been spun until coming to a complete rest is 19.37 seconds by Britain’s Scott Day.
WANNA BREAK THIS RECORD?
Here’s what you need to know if you want to have a spin at the record:
1. The coin should be spun on a smooth, flat surface measuring a maximum of 1 x 1 m (3 x 3 ft) which should be dry.
2. The coins to be used are 10p coins in Great Britain, 25¬¢ coins in the United States and, in other countries, coins weighing at least 0.21 oz or 6 g and having a maximum diameter of 2.5 cm or 1 in.
3. Any coin used must have a grooved edge and be offered for inspection to make sure it has not been tampered with.
4. The time starts when the coin starts spinning and stops when the coin comes to a complete rest.
5. An official timekeeper should be present thoughout the attempt.
6. Each participant is only allowed three attempts.

This will be the featured item today for New Toy Friday at work. I can’t wait!
That would be sweet to spin a quarter for 25 seconds.
I just broke the World Record … who do I call? :b
wow tom! what was your time? I tried a few times and got a 14.6.
i just spun a quarter for 23.5 minutes, and it was stopped at that point
I think you mean 23.5 seconds, not minutes.
is this just spinning it or im i aloud to flick it to keep it going longer?
Matt, You are allowed to hold the quarter vertically on the table. Then you give it just one flick. At the moment of that first flick, start your time. Once the quarter has completely stopped, end your time. No additional flicks are allowed.
what is the record for the longest time spinning a quarter when u r aloud to flick is while it is spinning to keep it goin longer. Thats the record i wanna break.
Matt, the longest time a quarter has been spun when ur able to flick it is 5 minutes 48.3seconds. I have broke it before but i dont know who to contact.
Jeff, thank you for writing in, but I highly doubt you were able to spin it longer than five minutes. This could only happen if you were in outer space.
