1 in 2, or 50% on each toss to get a head assuming no standonedge or coin down the sewer tosses.
0.5 raised to the 6th power

A fair coin is tossed 6 times.
Compute the probability of tossing 6 heads in a row.
Probability of getting 6 heads in a row: 1/2^6 = 1/64

If it comes from a fair it's probably a trick coin so I'd say it's pretty likely.

Total number of possible outcomes is 2^6 which is 64
There is only one way to get 6 heads.
The probability of tossing 6 heads in a row is 1/64
Things would get more complicated somewhat if less than 6 heads were involved, because permutations and/or combinations would be brought in.

There are 2^6 = 64 possible outcomes, equally probable. Only one of them is all heads. The probability is 1/ 64.

1/2^6.
Toss it once, the odds of heads is 1/2
Toss it twice and the odds of two head is 1/4 (1/2*1/2)
Toss it three times and the odds of three heads is 1/8 (1/2*1/2*1/2)
You can see that the odds of all heads is (1/2)^n where n is the number of coin tosses.
EDIT  It's not 1/2^6, it's (1/2)^6. Sorry about that.

Binomial Probability
P(Heads) = 0.5
P(Tails) = 0.5
Trials = 6
Successes = 6
P(6 Heads) = 6C6*0.5^6*0.5^0
