As I understand it each coin will represent a separate bin and each flip will represent a marble in the bin. The target function determines if any particular flip will be heads or tails. Note that coins that have different degrees of fairness will have different target functions.

The definition and subsequent analysis makes the assumption that there is a single target function f which we are trying to approximate. Clearly, if there are multiple target functions then we don't satisfy the initial assumptions for using the learning algorithm.
