Place 2 sets 3 coins on top of each other, such that we have 3C 3C. This will make 2 vertical lines with 3 coins each.
other possibility is that place 3 coins in a row and 3 in vertical line doubling the centre coin such that we have:
C
C 2C C
C
This will make two lines with 4 coins each.

Either im misunderstanding or this is very simple and basic.
6 coins into 2 lines with the same amount of coins in each line = 2 lines of 3 coins?

This riddle is a bit confusing. When you simply keep 3 coins in a row, each line have the same amount of coins. Isn't it. You have not mentioned about diagnol lines, horizontal lines or vertical lines. So I think the riddle is not complete.
