I use my wand and if there are kids they make the coins jump from one hand to the other one at a time. Or I vanish it and blow on my wand and make it "pop" out the bottom But something I'm contemplaiting getting is a chop cup for a half dollar. It is BEAUTIFUL!

Coins Across is a standard for me, which then sequeys (how the heck do you spell that?) into Matrix.

It seems to me that as an opener a coin production would be a natural.

Thanks, S2000. Couldn't remember and was too lazy to spell check.

As a variant, I'll often start with Continous Coins (production) then go into Coins Across (teleportation/transposition), go to Matrix and then vanish the coins using BA lapping or a gravity drop vanish using the silk I started with.

I prefer to arrange my effects in 'closed circles of logic' as it were.

I like to open with coins across because it is not too long; yet long enough to allow me to gauge the table. I can watch reactions and decide who at the table I will ask to assist me in the next effect. I also like that the final stage ends in the Spectator's hand.

For the people who have a coins across, matrix, etc.. Could you point out to which ones you use so we could research the "worker" material? I'm back in the coin game again and am looking for getting into these effects.

Out of all the people I talk to for magic the one Coins Across that is constantly mentioned: Jay Sankey's Mr. Clean Coins Across. It's a great routine and a real worker.

The vanish I talked about can be found in plenty of Joshua Jay's material. Method in Magic is the DVD I have from him and it's great. I have used this in a few different settings and it always plays big.

All three of mine (Continuous Coins, Coins Across and Maxtrix) come straight out of Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic, with small handling changes.

Bobo's is the bible, obviously. Lots of untapped material in there- seems like every time a new coin effect comes out it's either a re-work or a re-hash straight out of this book.

Coins from silk. Pocket silk laid over hand and a coin is produced. This can be repeated two or three times. I like producing two coins and then doing Carl Andrews "World Famous Two Coin Routine". Which is an ungimmicked hopping halfs routine.


After doing your card tricks, you can put them away in a card box. Then produce three coins from the silk. From there go into John Kennedy's Impossible Matrix http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/335

If you keep one of the gimmick cards in the cardbox you can go back to it when you want to do the Matrix. When you are done, steal the extra coin and go into a coin across routine for a finish.

Dishonest Abe and my own "World Famous Two Coin Trick". Check out "Making a living performing close-up magic" and "No Jacket Required" DVD's for great restaurant material and valuable tips.

Carl, I'm going to plug "The Strolling Magician" for you as well. Love your presentation for Crazy Man's Handcuffs and Ring Flight. You were instrumental in forming my fundamental philosophy of magic - HAVE FUN! They should remember you not just for the knock-their-socks-off magic but because they had a really good time while you were there.

Using different holdouts, I like to make 4 coins appear one at a time from an object on the table. Then I say, "Well it was your glass so I should put your coins back," and then I return them as they disappear one at a time.

I very often open with a coin routine.

I introduce a piece a flash paper, burn it, first coin appear. Then second and third coin appear. They vanish in the flame.

The last one becomes a jumbo coin. I really like this routine, very visual, quite easy to do and instant reset.

Look into Chris Korn's "The Liptack Sighting" or Mike Eatons "Orlando Opener" (I think it's called that). Both are perfect openers.

For me it got to be a one coin flash production if I decided to do a (one) coin routine

Nailed coin (have a coin stuck to your head take it off and there is a nail that was stuck in your head) also Jay Sankey has a great routine where a button changes to a copper coin then to a silver which he uses as an opener.
