1. Put six on one side and six on the other side. The counterfeit coin is in the light side.

2. Take the light side and put three coins on one side and three coins on the left side. The counterfeit coin is on the light side.

3. Pick any two coins from the light side. Place one on one side and one on the other side. If one is lighter than the other, then it is the counterfeit. If they weigh the same, then the one not on the scale is the counterfeit.

Thank you
