You might have a flip-over double-strike which would bring several dollars from an error collector, but you should be able to see at least a trace of heads and tails on both sides. If the tails image that is on the heads side is reversed, it is possible that someone laid another coin on top of yours and hit it with a hammer. If that's what happened you just have a damaged coin. Someone familiar with minting errors would have to examine it to be sure.

50/50. There are two sides (heads and tails), so half of the time it will land on heads. 49.5% or something like that because the coin can land on heads, tails, or on its edge. but the likelihood is like a fraction of a percent, but it is possible

There are two answers to this question. If it can only land on heads or tails up, then there is a 50% chance ( or half a chance) it will land heads up, but that's not necessarily true. But, if it can land on heads, tails, or sides, then there is a 16% chance it will land tails up.

The probability of heads is 0.5 or 1/2. This is wrong, the chances of a penny landing heads up is less than 0.5 because the cast in Lincoln's head weighs more than the tails side of the peeny.

The probability is 0%. The result will be heads or it will be tails but it cannot be heads and tails.
