    Increase your F/stop a bit. The focus is only on the middle portions of the 3 leading coins. Hard to tell what they are when half of the coin is blurry. Especially when the coins are foreign to you. :p

    Woot go canada. I think a close up on the dark, oxidized penny on the right would be more interesting.

    I lack the proper equipment to photograph it from above. What do you call that kind of tripod which is directly above the subject? My hands were a little bit trembling but I leaned on a chair and table. Would f/24 increase the depth of field? Just curious.

    Yes. Yes it would. All of the coins would be in focus at that aperature.

    F/3.5 is way too low. Try F/8 or F/5.6, that's also most likely the sharpness sweetspot too. You don't have to be above the subject either, stand it on a diagonal and look at it more straight on (although totally straight on makes a pretty boring look).

    For macro work, I will try F/11 to F/16 to increase the depth of field. The optical performance of the lens may drop due to diffraction if aperture is set too low, such as F/24.
