Hi. I would like to hear some opinions on this:

When you have a routine that uses ungimmicked coins that are switched for gimmicked coins, how do you keep the coins and how do you manage them? I like to keep things simple and easy to manage, so I tend to keep both gimmicked coins and ungimmicked coins in the same pouch and then palm the gimmicked coins while I hand out the ungimmicked coins. I then do a false transfer and ditch the ungimmicked coins as I put the pouch in my pocket.

Any other thoughts?

That chimes with me too; I have also used a gravity hold out in the past. Sean Goodman's new gizmo works nicely for the purpose, and is far less hassle as well as not requiring sleeves.

Tony Miller's Möbius Wallet, which is perfect for coins, also features a hold out option, and it's motivated as a prop by its nature. It is a very deceptive item; also, it is the only coin purse I have ever or will ever own, as I just find coin purses... well... a bit... 'girly', for want of a better word.

Anyways, what you outlined in your initial post works for me too. No messing, no special prep needed.
