getting around Lenz's law


These go hand in hand:

Lenz’s Law: Heinrich Emil Lenz (1804-1865) formulated Lenz's law in 1834, which states, "The EMF induced in an electric circuit always acts in such a direction that the current it drives around a closed circuit produces a magnetic field which opposes the change in magnetic flux."

Faraday’s Law of Induction: Michael Faraday (1791-1867) formulated Faraday’s Law of Induction in 1831, which states, “The induced electromotive force or EMF in any closed circuit is equal to the time rate of change of the magnetic flux through the circuit.”

How can a coil get charged with a magnetic field and defeat the above two "laws"?

The answer is right there in both of those Laws.
