Goldfinger: Stand Up Coin Mysteries by John McLachlan

Develop your coin magic skills and presentations.

John McLachlan, and six of his magic colleagues in Toronto, present a 112 page eBook of coin magic to help you enchant and entertain. They begin with a dozen relatively easy Cool Moves which can be used almost immediately for impromptu quick effects at the coffee shop or in small groups. These are also used as building blocks for the more than a dozen Performance Pieces. (It is assumed the reader knows basic coin moves such as palming and your time is not wasted by repeating what most magicians know.) There are, however, some astonishing moves described in detail. Learn from the styles of the seven performers who contributed to the book and who teach you their methods for Three Fly with regular silver dollars, a Hopping Halfs type effect with ordinary coins, an unbelievable coin change, a scenario about the type of acrobats used in Bond films, a nightmare in which you are constantly one coin short and a compelling finish as dreamland approaches as well as other mysteries.

1st edition 2012, 112 pages.

(All moves and routines by John McLachlan unless noted differently.)
