Making a true statements guarantees that you will get one coin, but not necessarily the gold one. Requesting that it be gold (which you did in a separate sentence by the way) doesn't help.

Coins - Back to the Logic Problems
Imagine there are 3 coins on the table. Gold, silver and copper. If you say a truthful sentence, you will get one coin. If you say a false sentence, you get nothing. Which sentence can guarantee gaining the gold coin?


Spoiler for Solution

or you could say "there are 3 coins on the table B))

that statement is true so I will give you 1 coin - I will give you the copper one (so you won't get the gold coin)
