"There is a gold coin on the table; silver is another coin on the table; and copper is the last coin on the table."

Three true statements in one sentence. Each true statement gains you one coin, so you'll gain all three coins.

I think the most effective sentence would be "You will give me the gold coin, or I will beat you to a bloody pulp".

This is an easy one for simple thought. A true statement will get you the gold coin.. a false will get you none. Nothing is said about what the statement has to be about, only that you must be truthful. Lets assume the statement must concern the exercise...here is a garaunteed statement

"There are 3 coins on the table"

Doesn't work. The person in charge of giving out coins can easily declare that sentence false and say that if he would have given you a coin it would have been the copper one.
