Tony Chapparo
Coin Thru Head by Tony Chapparo

Pass a borrowed and signed coin through your head. You put it into one ear and take it out from the other ear. It is the same coin. No switches whatsoever. An unusual effect! The method is pretty cool but you have to watch your angles and you have to prepare a few things. Actually this can really only be seen from the front - head on. It is a great effect for a single spectator or a small group of spectators or for TV work.

Tony mentions in the manuscript that initially this should have been released jointly with Paul Harris as a DVD because he was very interested in the method. But this...

David Roth
The Coin Roll (Steeplechase) by David Roth

This is a beautiful flourish where one or more coins roll across the back of the fingers. Both Nate Leipzig and Allan Shaw claim to have invented this move. Al Goshman did a wonderful version where a coin rolls up and down his hand. Extreme variations go as far as rolling eight coins, four on each hand.

Devin Knight
Roly-Poly by Devin Knight

Roly-Poly is one of the most commercial close-up tricks you can do, it is quick and easy to do. It's perfect when you have less than a minute to impress someone. I used this effect in my strolling restaurant gig for over seven years. This often got better response than some of my other effects. Kids love to watch this, and it always generates smiles and laughter. This was taught during my 2010 lecture tour and was well received by the magicians in attendance.

The effect is that you show an ungimmicked quarter (any quarter size coin can be used in foreign countries). You start rubbing the...

Comedy Coin Prediction by Devin Knight
"I just got this today, it's great! Sometimes, the simple tricks are the best. I've already shown it to some people, and it really DOES get a big laugh. Thanks!" - Dave D.
Effect: Here is a very novel comedy close-up prediction effect that your spectators haven’t seen before. Almost everyone carries a cell phone nowadays, and most all of the cell phones have a calculator. Tell your spectator that you have made a prediction and that it is contained inside a small coin envelope.

Dave Arch
Capture the Coin by Dave Arch

You can almost smell the popcorn and hear the screams from the roller coaster as the magician unfolds the game board to demonstrate this seldom seen scam entitled Capture The Coin. With two coins placed on a checkerboard-like mat, the mark attempts to beat the game operator by moving in turn their coins one square at a time. If the mark successfully eludes the operator's coin from catching (moving into the same intersection of the lines as his), the mark wins. If the operator corners the mark's coin and then moves his coin into the same intersection of lines as the mark's coin, the operator...

Lewis Ganson
The Gil-Gan Swindle by Lewis Ganson

What a lovely, simple, but hugely effective coin routine this is. Although an Okito Box is used, none of the regular Okito Box moves are employed .... there are virtually NO SLEIGHTS involved in this effect! Lewis also gives credit to BOB SWADLING for his subtle idea which is incorporated and which makes the effect possible .... and what an effect! A close-up masterpiece!

A small piece of plastic the size of a playing-card is shown and placed across the mouth of a tumbler. A 2p piece (or USA 5 cent piece) is placed on top of the plastic and covered by the lid of a small brass box. On tapping...

The Effect: The magi weaves a story of smuggling Pesos across the Mexican border. Then demonstrates by placing a signed Peso in one hand and an empty (just examined) film canister in the other hand. The spectators hold onto the hand with the peso to keep it from escaping ... yet the other hand (no where near the peso hand) shakes the Film Canister ... silence ... silence ... then suddenly you HEAR the coin appear in the canister. It can be immediately handed to a spectator to open. No switches, no dups and everything is examinable before and after the performance. Don't believe me? Watch the...

The Miser's Miracle by Jerry Andrus

EFFECT: The performer shuffles a deck of cards and fans them out, explaining that he will use the two cards wherever the spectator says, "Stop." At the spectators indication the performer stops and removes the two cards at that point. Both hands and both cards are shown on both sides and without further manipulation the two cards are placed together face to face, and a silver dollar is seen to slowly emerge from between them.

After rolling up his sleeves and again showing his hands empty, the performer picks up the deck from the table and shuffles it again. The cards are fanned out, and again...

Coins Thru Table by Paul A. Lelekis

First of all let me explain that this Coins Thru Table routine can also be used as a Coins Across routine, which is a routine I've been using for about 28 years while table-hopping.

This routine is unlike any other routine you've seen. 5 coins are used (one contrasting coin) and all are regular coins. No shells, no hidden props, no gaffed coins are used. Carry these 5 coins in your pocket and you will be ready to perform an impromptu miracle that will really "shake up" your spectators. And it's simple to do. In addition, there are NO weird sleights or 'knuckle-busters' used in this routine....

Radek Makar
Into Thin Air by Radek Makar

This is a two part routine - vanish three coins, one by one, and reproduce the same three coins again one by one.

The reason Radek prefers to first vanish coins and then make them reappear, as apposed to have three coins appear and then vanish them, is the fact that you can do this routine with borrowed coins. You start with examined coins and then show a miracle which is much stronger than the other way around. You borrow coins or take them out of your pocket – at this point there is no doubt these are just three regular coins. Magic starts when you vanish them. When the coins are re-produced...

Hypnotic Spellbound is a spellbound just like any other -- a few different color changes of a coin in one sequence. There is one sleight difference. There are two common ways of performing Spellbound. One of them is a show of pure skill -- the magician changes the coin's color one time right after the other without saying anything. The second most common type is the same as above but the magician also describes what's happening -- "the coin changes color from... to..." etc.

Heads, I Win. Tails, You Lose! by David Devlin

A really strong piece of mentalism that is impromptu and can be performed literally in every single performing situation is not too easy to find. This, however, fits the bill beautifully.

Effect: The mentalist places a business card onto the table. The audience is told that there is a prediction underneath the business card, but that it will not be shown to them until later. The performer reaches into his pocket (or wherever) and brings out three invisible coins: a nickel, a quarter, and a dime. The spectator is told to imagine that she sees them. The performer lays the imaginary coins in...

Raymonde Crow
Fred Miser by Raymonde Crow

In the coin routine Fred Miser, three silver coins change to copper one at a time, and then back to silver. Although you will need gaffed coins (a sun and moon coin and a half dollar from an unexpanded shell set), the gaffs allow for very clean displays and make the routine relatively easy to perform. This is a coin routine performed in the hands, which automatically resets.

As an added bonus we have included Raymonde's handling for Royal Magic's "Coin Funnel," which is like a chop cop routine using ungaffed or even borrowed quarters, and ends with a surprise production. The routine is performed...
