I think the answer is <b>D</b>.

(A) This would strengthen the conclusion
(B) This would strengthen the conclusion because since there are only 4 coins, her coin will be worth a fortune.
(C) This would strengthen the conclusion
(D) This would weaken the conclusion because if there is an abudance of the coin she is planning to sell, people will not spend a lot on something that is easily attainable.
(E) This would strengthen the conclusion
