- "I told you we should have rescued the boy first."
- ―President Alma Coin on Peeta[src]
Coin was presumably raised in, and served as the leader of District 13 and the rebellion. Due to Katniss Everdeen's unique position as a symbol of rebellion to the districts, Coin had Katniss, along with Finnick Odair and Beetee rescued from the arena following the 75th Hunger Games, after Katniss destroyed the force field surrounding the arena. This action effectively prompted the Capitol to bomb District 12. However, she was not able to rescue Peeta Mellark, Johanna Mason, and Enobaria. With Katniss safe in District 13, Coin was forced to cooperate as she recovered from her physical and mental traumas, although she was rather impatient. Like the other rebels, Coin needed Katniss to don the label of Mockingjay, and help fuel the districts into rebellion.
During the execution of President Snow, Katniss remembered the conversation she had with Snow and realized President Coin was behind Primrose Everdeen's death, along with the death of a great amount of rebel medics. So instead of shooting Snow, she turned her single arrow from Snow to President Coin and shot Coin instead (partly to avenge Prim's death). President Coin fell off the balcony as the people looked on in fear and horror. It is possible that she didn't die from the arrow but from the fall itself. This resulted in Katniss being taken away and declared mentally unstable. President Snow also died from coughing up blood from "the many mouth sores that will never heal" when he drank poison that let him rise to power. Katniss also realized that President Coin's rise for power, which made her very power hungry even more so than President Snow, also changed her ideas. When Katniss first began to fight the Capitol, President Coin's stance was to end the Hunger Games and there would never be another one, securing Katniss' support. However, after defeating the Capitol, Coin asks the remaining victors about using Capitol children for one last Hunger Games, and Katniss realizes this was her plan all along, betraying the trust of her and the rest of the victors who truly wanted The Hunger Games to end, despite their vote for a "yes". Katniss also uses this reason to kill President Coin.
Not much is known about President Coin initially, but Katniss soon realizes how power-hungry Coin is, even more so than Snow.
She is devious, unmoving, and will do whatever it takes to attain her goals. She makes it clear that she views Katniss as an inferior and a mere icon for the rebellion, and is miffed when Katniss makes demands, and is forced to go along with them in the face of the public.
Even so, Coin viewed Katniss as an eventual threat, and meant to have her die and become a martyr, inspiring the rebellion with Katniss's supposed "sacrifice".
In the end, after the Rebellion is victorious, Coin attempts to secure the remaining Victors' loyalty with the proposal of a final Hunger Games, using the children of the Capitol higher-ups, and in her arrogance she believed herself to have secured Katniss' loyalty.
However, Katniss had realized the supposed Capitol bombs that rained down on the Capitol refugees and Coin's own medic corps that killed many, including Katniss's sister, Prim, was ordered by Coin, and turns her arrow on the President of District 13, ending her threat before it truly begins.
Coin's ruthless killing of children and her own medics was meant to frame Snow for the crime, and possibly secure Katniss's loyalty by tricking her into believing Snow killed her sister. But it turned out to be her greatest mistake.
On September 13th it was confirmed that actress Julianne Moore will portray Alma Coin in both The Hunger Games: Mockingjay movies.
