Differentiate between "Getting nothing" and "Getting stuff I already have".
coins does not work
from the start of 5.4 patch i can count coin drops on one hand
When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all ... Futurama-Godfellas
In LFR you have a 25% chance of getting a piece of loot from the boss' loot table when it dies.
If you then roll a coin, you have another 25% chance of getting a piece of loot. It's exactly as if you "looted" the boss twice.
Outside of LFR the boss has a fixed pool of drops, but the coin works exactly the same, 25% chance of loot dropping.
In all cases, which piece it drops out of the ones available to you is also random.

The game doesn't.
Also are the people saying I haven't won anything for x ammount of weeks literally not winning anything or are they just winning stuff they don't have / want?
I actually prefer to get gold than getting an item I have or don't want because least my coin loot chance wont reset if I get nothing.

We could always go back to not having coins at all, then all these threads would just be renamed "fucking shit wont drop my fucking shit, why did they remove fucking coins?!!"
Blizzard just can't win.
I love the coin roll system. Without it, I'd still be at 560 ilvl as all the drops we've seen in my guild are plate and leather :/ Currently the only pieces I haven't rolled for myself are tier legs, bracers, and tier helm (not even equipped) and i'm at 576 in a 10-man.
If you hate it so much, stop using it.
OT: It's almost certainly the case that bonus coin roll % increases are per boss.
