# How many surfaces does a coin have?

A coin is considered to be cylindrical in shape.

## Answer: A coin has one curved and two flat surfaces.

Let's know about the surfaces of a coin.

**Explanation:**

In mathematics, a coin is in the shape of a cylinder. It has 'two' flat faces and one curved surface (edge of the coin).

A coin is generally circular in shape because the height (thickness) of the coin is very less when compared to its diameter.

### Thus, a coin has one curved and two flat surfaces.
