    italian lira

    i suggest you never play with an italian 100lire...it's unfair! it has been prooved that, because of smth related to the weight of the 2 faces of the coin, there are more probs that you got or head or cross(i can't remember exactly which one..)!! well, but of course, in italy gambling and bets are prohibited, so..il problema nn si pone!in terms of law, of course..!

    But flipping a coin is usually expected to be fair, in the sense that
    the outcomes have equally probability of 0.5.
