Yes.  It only speeds up during its fall from the top gate to the bottom 
one.  The gates themselves don't affect its speed in any way.  So long as
the area between the two is a vaccuum (easily done, as I outlined in a 
previous post), it will gain speed each time it falls.

If there's air between the two gates, the coin will only reach 'terminal 
velocity', no more than few dozen meters per second.
