The first phase is the commercial version, the second phase is my own contribution-
which, incidently, was discovered by happy accident. (Don't you love it when that happens?)

Also, I know that the effect would be better served had I left the sound of the coin hitting the glass rather than done to music. I was trying to accomplish both and the music overrided the actual sound. I am working on a new shoot to correct this.

Hope you enjoy-

I really like the second phase. I think you would be best served by using the largest, shiniest coin possible.

Nice point- especially if I ever elected to do this for more than a handful of onlookers (i.e. parlor environment) This particular coin is roughly the size of a nickle. I could pull of a quarter size, but anything larger I would need to rethink the handling.

Well done, I really like it as it definitely enhances the whole effect by giving a reason for doing it again under impossible conditions.
