Bionic Coin by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

This is an exceedingly clever and versatile way to gimmick a coin to create a stunning and visual effect. It works with many coins including US quarters, half dollars and dollars, some Euro coins, as well as many other coins from various countries.

Effect: You ask a spectator for a coin. The spectator or performer marks or draws something on the coin. You show your hands empty and you show the coin clearly from both sides. At this point there is no secret second coin involved. You simply move your finger across the face of the coin and the drawing instantly changes, either vanishes or transforms...

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...

In the quiet sanctum of one’s home, or in a circle of intimate friends, a person performing an effect in magic may be perfectly at ease, but under fire before a critical audience it may be a different story. More times than I care to remember I have seen this happen; this is especially true of the spare-time Magician and, believe me, it is my sincere desire to help overcome this failing.

But, I also believe a person can be taught to perform Magician’s tricks in a manner that is quite pleasing. It is with this thought in mind that I have consented to put into...
