Mickey Silver would certainly fall in this category but is not available. Any suggestions.

You are kidding, right?
There is literally books on this topic.
Nelson; BoBo, Dexter; Kort; Ganson and more.

Which theme?
Miser dream; coin box; ribbon, bag, matrix, there are others.
What venue?
Bar magic, walk around, night club, stage?

Yes I have all those. Those you mention aren't really one coin. The venue is really academic but close-up. As I mentioned, thinking in terms of Silver.

I had the pleasure of seeing Mickey Silver perform a one-coin routine at the Magic Castle many moons ago. Extraordinary!

Iíd also look into the DVDís with Apollo Robbins & Shoot Ogawa that Bob Kohler produced years ago. Some really nice, visual one-coin stuff.

I like the "Flurry" by David Roth. It is on DVD and "Expert Coin Magic". I also like the Moritz Mueller routine, Ponta The Smith's from "Sick", and "The Batchelor Coin Routine" by Kainoa Hardbottle. There are many, but level of difficulty and whether you lean towards a flourish or more of a trick will play into it. Also a factor is if there is really only 1 coin, or another hidden, or any gimmicks. Check out the Conjuring Archive and search for "one coin routine"

There isn't really a best as it's always down to what suits the performer and what the performers need's are so what might play well for one may not play well for another.

Some guy who called himself Slydini had a slick one coin routine that flows nicely. :)

Who?

Just kidding ;) Good add! I looked through my database and found others I liked at one time or another. Look at "Coin Fu" by Ryan Hyashi and of course check out Bobo.

Tom Stone has a really nice one coin routine.

Yes 66, I always thought Stone's routine was one of the very best as it brought together a variety of surprising & magical moments. One of the very best for sure, bar none. :)

Some of the best "one" coin routines are done with two. hehe. It really can help magic happen for the spectator.

Sometimes we forget about Michael Ammar's early coin work. If you look at his early coin routines and productions they are very will thought out , in his big book.

Insights is great but works best for dollar sized coins. I love Eric Jonesís and Homer Liawagís one coin routines.

I heard he now is in a different occupation and , perhaps is no longer available however I personally find his lesson enjoyable to perform.

See this just for fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKL9cb0SS74 not the best,not the worst,not the most difficult,not the longest but practical,well within the skill range of anyone.when Copperfield and Don Wayne saw/liked the "pinch" display in the middle they lifted it,put it at the top of one of his early specials and didn't pay me a dime.live and learn.it was the last thing I ever showed him.he's tight as two coats of paint.....

I was impressed with Moritz Mueller's One Coin Routine, the fact that he's only 15 years old, wow. Check it out at Ellusionist.
