If I send someone a coin before they have downloaded all the blocks, will that coin be lost?

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

It will not be lost.  They will see it show up in their transaction list once all the blocks are downloaded.  Every other node has a copy of the transaction too.
