1- you push a coin across a tabble, the coin stops. How does this motion relate to balanced and unbalanced forces?

An unbalanced force will result in acceleration of deceleration. That is what happens in your example.

It is balanced if it completely stops. That is called deceleration. While an unbalanced force makes it move. So the friction is actually what makes it stop.
