What brought you to worry about what the audience might be thinking about how a trick is done?

Larry Jennings' Peripatetic Coins is an intriguing one. No table required....looks very direct, with a minimum of fiddling between the coins traveling. It's in The Magic Of Larry Jennings, I believe.

I think you've posted in the wrong thread as that routine has nothing to do with coins across you would be better off starting a new thread in ta more appropriate section try here http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewf......17&37512

I love necro'd threads as they offer tons of information for those who haven't been on the Café for long. WHat am I doing on the coin forum when really good performers like Marini, Salinas, Rubenstein, Boykin, and others are here? I broke two fingers trying to Faro five Morgans into a Tally Ho pack.

Anyhow ...

Standing Three Eagles by Larry Jennings
Winged Silver, Nelson Hahne. (Yeah, it uses the one ahead principle as does the Jennings routine, but I love it and it fries the civilians).
Mexican Jumping Bean Coins. (I'm shocked that the erstwhile Mr. Salinas didn't mention this one).
Twisted Trio by Curtis Kam. (It is a multiphase slay yer neurons epic but there is an excellent coins across phase)
Easy Expert Coins Across by Larry Jennings

If coins across at the fingertips count, then ...

I had the pleasure of reviewing Michael O'Brien's Whiskey Coins to Glass download. It's a simple coins across that uses half dollars, a whiskey glass, and has an exciting kicker ending bottle production. Check out my review.

Here's my take on Flying Eagles which doesn't use any gimmicks, I've had spectators hold out both hands and performed it on their hands so although I'm using a table here it's not required.

Wow, an old thread brought to life! Since this posted, my book has several non-gimmicked coins across routines. I have a few filmed on my YouTube channel Rubinstein Coin Magic. I also have a commercial trick, MIGRATE, that is non gimmicked (although you need poker chips with bears, or coins with bear images, you can do the routine with any coins by changing the patter line). Here are a few of the routines I filmed. Enjoy!

There is an interesting sub-set of the trick that not only uses no gaffs, but no extra 5th coin. Just 4. I know of about 3 versions...I'm sure there are more.

Nice! The great thing about no extra 5th coin, of course, is that you'd end clean. What versions are there with no extra 5th coin? (I can only think of matrix routines that are gimmickless with no extra 5th coin.)

Oscar, there are two videos above that use no extra coins. Also in Retro Fly and MIGRATE, also shown above, the extra coin/chip is cleverly ditched at the end leaving you clean. There is one more in my book, where you start openly showing only 3 coins, but secretly add one during the routine . It is called the Specciolini Brothers, in my book, and you can see it performed here:

hummm - I might get inspired to publish some such routines in an eBook. Glad to see the interest here.

Thanks, I think I see which two videos. So it *is* possible not to have an extra coin!

The first coins across I learned was from Harry Lorayne 's MAGIC BOOK. Used nothing but quarters. I find that even to this day, I will do that version, even though I have the gimmick available.

The first one I remember learning well, at least after fumbling through the stuff in Bobo’s back in the day, was from Michael Ammar. It was a simple one but got me thinking down many roads as to the effect.

Sankey’s Mr. Clean Coins Across is what showed me how much the deception could be heightened. From there, I started going my own way with it all. And that’s what’s really good about coins across, it really helps you to create, mix & match and put together a nice routine for yourself. After all this time, I still say that besides pulling a little cash from your wallet, a good coins across is about the very best thing to have in your pocket and at the ready to make people smile.

The first I saw was by Geoff Latta and worked by getting 2 ahead, and then either a HPC in the middle and just acting on the other ones and the judicious use of the C.P. I have one in Secret Sessions. David Harkey had several. p.s. Instead of HPC, an in-hands substitute is David Roth's Tenkai Pennies version for large coins.

When I started learning coin magic, the very first coins across routine I saw happened to be one of the best ones out there, namely, David Roth’s Winged Silver. To me that became the gold standard of coins across routines, and I had to learn it.

I didn’t think anything could beat it until many years later when I saw Ponta the Smith’s Winged Silver. That became the new gold standard, and again I had to learn it.

Strangely, I hardly ever show either effect to anybody, maybe because the occasion never presents itself? I just happily practice in front of a three-way mirror or to a video camera, like it’s a fun exercise with coins.
