Ok so I did resolve the problem with my radio. I pulled the fuse out thinking maybe replacing that was my first step. I didn't have a spare fuse of that kind, so I just put the fuse back in. And my radio started working! Start with the fuse, if that doesn't work the radio prob needs to be replaced.

Sorry to say, but it is dead. The coin shorted out some of the components in the radio. If you could find some to fix it they still wouldn't be able to get the parts. You have to an electrical engineer to work on these things. Again sorry.
I have 2003 A4 Cabrio. Had 2 radio problems - one the volume control and the other not picking up radio channels. I got a reconditioned radio from Audi for £213 which fixed the volume but the signal still not working. Read another article. The ariel cable runs into the lid of the boot - you can see it on the right. I removed the emergency triangle and behind it is the ariel wire. Wiggled it and confirmed the problem was there. Got the signal back but it might be temporary - cable may be damaged or a connection problem because there are amps behind the trim. I have not taken the whole trim off but a lot of it unclips so you can see what is behind
Nope - you need the radio removal keys. You should see some small holes or slots near the edge of the faceplate - there are keys that go into them to unlock the radio. A stereo shop will have them - they may even pull the deck for you if you ask nicely. Only takes a few seconds, and it saves you having to buy the keys.
