Easy Pick-Up Coin

Sometimes it's hard to pick up a coin from the ground or a flat surface.

The new, easy to pick-up coin follows the design of a parallelogram, with the edge sloped on both sides by 45 degrees. In this way, the top side of the coin can be pressed down, raising the coin to be easily picked up.
1. The 45 degree sloped edge makes picking up these coins easy.
2. When many of these coins are stacked together, the distinct edges making counting them easier.
