These images of a spinning standing coin diamond of 16 real UK 5p coins, dated 2011 or 2012, have been captured from a video by Robin Linhope Willson, formerly Professor of Biochemistry, Brunel University, UK.
This standing coin diamond is one small, but beautiful, part of the "Balancing the Forces of Nature" project of Ciencias y Artes Patagonia (www.capat.org) a voluntary organization supported by the Magic Penny Trust (www.magicpenny.org).
The coins are held together in a balanced position due to the presence of a block magnet out of sight above the coins. No other magnets are present.
The background Northumbrian landscape is an A3 size colour print from a photographic transparency taken in 1964, 1965 or 1966. The video and further details will be published soon.
