In the field Private_0029_1020 you can find something like this: asCoilSelectMeas.asList.sCoilElementID.tCoilID = ""32Ch_Head"" if it is the 32ch coil.
Unfortunately you have to use the dicominfo function from the image processing toolbox, as this field is not included in spm_dicom_headers.m alternatively you can just open one of the files in a text editor.

> Does any one know if the identity of (or other information about) the head coil used during scanning is stored in the Dicom header? We are using a Siemens 3T Tim Trio and are trying to figure out if the 12 or 32 channel coil was used to acquire some older scans.
