Imagine there are 3 coins on the table: gold, silver, and copper. If you make a truthful statement, you will get one coin. If you make a false statement, you will get nothing. What sentence can guarantee you getting the gold coin?

Basically it is verbal reasoning riddle so, answer of this is: You will have to say, You will give me neither copper nor silver coin.
If it is true, then you will surely get the gold coin but If it is not true  then the negation must be true, so the updated statement becomes: You will give me either copper or silver coin. This would contradict the given conditions so you will get no coin when lying. So the first sentence will surely true.
