This is admittedly a bit of a random idea! This blog post shows how to flip a coin using iLogic in Inventor.
UPDATE: There is a new version that uses a 3D Coin in an Inventor .IPT; available here.
The idea came from my previous blog post, looking at generating random numbers to create colours. Initially I thought it would be interesting to create a form and to use an enabling parameter to swap out an image, but I decided that it would be better to fire up a website containing the image, it also made this simpler to share, as it is only a few short lines of code.
Below is an animated GIF showing the code in action:
Here is the iLogic code:
