Dan has a DVD out. I use a couple of Dan's routines, which are on this DVD and they are KILLER. CSB Assault & 4 Coins, Your Hands are real world miracles!!


The Middle Finger Backclip – An extremely useful and deceptive utility sleight that enables you to show your palm up hand empty, while concealing a coin. Dan teaches everything you need to know to effectively utilize the technique for a couple of his routines.

The Holster Holdout – An innovative one coin holdout that can be worn in plain view. It instantly delivers a concealed coin to your hand at your will.

outsDANding – Adding to ideas of Troy Hooser and John Ramsay, Dan teaches a very clear, direct, and entertaining three coin fingertip production-vanish-reproduction sequence utilizing three solid silver dollars. Also taught in great detail is Dan’s “Ramsay Feint” variation that eliminates the traditional false take of the last coin.

Fingertip Coins to Pocket – Dan’s version of “The Gadabout Coins” (two in the hand, one in the pocket plot) from J.B. Bobo’s Modern Coin Magic performed at the fingertips. Also taught is a new muscle pass/click pass application to setup the final vanish of all the coins.

CSB Assault – is Dan’s stand up Copper/Silver/Brass routine. The routine features a rapid fire, triple transposition that occurs in and out of a spectator’s hands, without the magician’s hands ever coming together.

Coinvention Crossing – Dan performs a very clean stand up coins across routine where three coins travel, one at a time, from the left hand to the right hand. Before and after each coin travels, both hands are clearly seen, palm up, to contain the appropriate number of coins.

Double Take Transposition - A spectator is given a silver coin to hold and the magician holds onto a copper coin. With just a wave of the hand, the coins change places! The effect is then instantly repeated and the two coins may be examined.

Flash Hop – A quick variation of Mark Jenest’s “Short Hop,” (Hopping Half routine without the Hopping Half gimmicks) ending with a surprise dollar bill production.

Flash Bill Fold – Dan’s teaches his new money folding technique to create a self contained 1” x 1” packet that can be secretly manipulated and then instantly produced at the fingertips.

Lightning Copper/Silver – Dan places a silver coin in his left hand and a copper coin in his right, somehow they change places! Quick, visual, no gaffs!

Breaking a Dollar – Dan appears to bend a silver dollar at his fingertips. Instantly, the silver dollar breaks into two half dollars. The two half dollars are placed into his right fist, whereby they fuse back into a silver dollar.

4 Coins, Your Hands – This is one of Dan’s most reputable effects. It is a Coins Across routine that is revolutionary in both method and effect. All of the magic apparently happens in a spectator’s outstretched hands. The coins appear to vanish one at a time from their right hand and arrive one at a time in their left; the last coin travels to her enclosed fist. This is interactive coin magic at its best!

Cylinder & Coins (Performance Only) – Dan performs his favorite formal close up routine: An exceptionally streamlined version of John Ramsay’s famous “Cylinder & Coins.”

I have both of Mr. Watkin's manuscripts, Coinvanish 1 and 2 and they are both excellent. They contain orignial and creative material with well written, easy to understand explanations along with color photographs. The routines range from simple to more compicated. I think that Dan Watkin's is one of the most proficient, talented and creative thinkers in coin magic today, not to mention he is also one of the nicest people around and always finds time to answer any of my questions pertaining to coin magic.

As soon as I saw that Mr. Watkin's was releasing DVD I immediately palced a pre-order directly at Dan Watkin's web site, without waiting for any reviews since I know it will contain terrific, creative, original and entertaining magic that were meant to be performed for real people in real, everyday settings that he himself has performed.

Reading the description of the routines that are included in the DVD and that they were created and performed by Mr. Watkin's, I am certain that everyone including myself will enjoy this DVD and will learn a lot of solid, entertaining and practical coin magic that can be done in real world settings.

Best regards,

The January 2006 issue of MAGIC Magazine had a review of COIN MAN WALKING written by Brad Henderson. I got permission to re-print the review at for anyone interested in reading it.
