How to build a balancing bridge out of coins without glue

Build a bridge of coins that can balance off the side of a table without glue. This video from The Q demonstrates the stacking process with around 200 coins. Can you make something similar with fewer coins, or something that balances even farther off your table?

Next, more hands-on activities and inspirations: Red PaperBridge, Epic Pen Spinning, How to make Leonardo da Vinci’s self-supporting bridge, Balance: Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque artist Maedir Eugster, and how many nails can you balance on the head of one nail?
