Number one is enough light from all angles.
number two is a digital camera with macro capabilities
 
Then just put the camera in macro and get really close to the coin.
 
You'd be amazed of the detail even a 1.5 megapixel camera can produce.

Don't forget to use the timer to avoid movement.  Mounting the camera is helpful too.

I have a Canon Powershot SX10is... on my camera if I hold the macro down, it will go into "SuperMacro" mode, talk about crystal clear Clap So everyone else out there that is taking coin photos just might want to see if your camera can do that. If not Marco is great also as stated by cudican
