Here is a way to help the Cups & Balls Museum

Inspired by the “Greatest Coin Effect in the Universe” idea, musing on Mb’s Dream, chitchat with Bill Palmer and restless nights, I have just created a new “impossible” coin effect as a gift for everyone. Imagine …

You show your hands empty except for a silver dollar while talking about how we are given change for a dollar in a store. You ask any spectator to name a number between one and a hundred. You drop the dollar on the table and next to it pour a pile of coins, whose value total is the exact number called out. Your hands are clean. For example, the number 43 is called out. You dump six coins on the table – a quarter, dime, nickel and three pennies. If 17 is called out you dump a dime, nickel and two pennies. Any number called for!

The principles are adaptable to other currencies as well.

No gimmicks or gaffed coins. Simple sleights – two of which came from Bill Palmer, but some special tricky stuff from FunSway. So, if you would like the eBook of this effect send Bill a donation for the Cups & Balls Museum – $5, $10, $2 whatever at

and send a request to for “Sudden Change”

The synergy that produced this “impossible Effect” is the real magic.

If you don't do coin effects at all, contact me for a C&B or Chop eBook instead
