It's working and It's fantastic. I was thinking about this effect whole day.
Can you explain me what do you do to have this effect ??
Greets and one more time "thank you"

Basically I just set up a collision plane for the ground, set the friction and gravity and set the coin to stop by stabilizer. Give it a little push in the Force Tab of HardFX and make sure the coin is a little off balance at the start. Calculate and bob's your uncle.

Darn you, dodgy!
Same basic principal as I used in mine - I couldn't make it get rid of that annoying bounce at the end, when it should be flat. Is it just me, or does "stop on stabilise" not work nearly as well as it should? Might help to have some kind of threshold control on when it should halt. On mine it would just randomly stop the coin movement, at around 25 - 30 frames. Odd behaviour indeed.

Stop by stabiliser is dependent on the Resolution setting in the file tab. Smaller values stop motion when it's smaller.
