I want to mention a couple of the greatest productions I have seen where by the Dr. Sawa. IMO He is truly one of the most inventive minds in coin magic. His routines are exceptional some his productions are magical.

Here's one I devised a while ago :

It's very direct and if combined with some DPTP just before the actual production, you get a coin coming from nowhere Smile

I developed a little flair to any "form thin air" production that has proved very effective. It is called Pluck
Rather then just reveal the coin at the fingertips, hold the coin in a palming position that allows an easy release (not sticky hang-up)
I prefer a clip between the first two fingers or Crimp.

Just before you each the desired "spot in the air," release the coin so that momentum lets it fly forward a bit.
As it reached the fingertips, draw the tips back to grab the lower part of the coin only and turn the hand for flash of the coin.
In reality, the coin is just hanging there instead of moving so this is easy.

From the spectator's view the coin just materialized in the air and you grabbed it.

I prefer to use just the tips of thumb and middle finger with index held high and palm forward for the catch.

Thanks for all for these great ideas and references. This thread has a real point to it.
People would like to see money appear magically, and coins as well, if it really looks like magic,
not just something "pulled from a f. palm" *hehe you get my drift. Very important topic thanks again to all.

something I Just thought of: loading a tt w dimes and showing a bill on both sides cleanly, as well as your hands, then producing a lot of dimes etc......

I agree, there's some good stuff mentioned here alright. But for me, this remains one of the most amazing coin productions I've ever seen. It even inspired me to create a simple to use version for my own coin magic, which kicked it all up a notch and gave me incredible powers to even greater magical demonstrations... Smile

This technique can indeed look like real magic when executed well.

Magicfish, my concern is not magicians being in awe of their techniques or quoting a name. This is a real problem in coin magic; truly magical coin productions. On the other hand,
it is: do the spectators think they saw real magic? doubtful.

Agreed county. I tried many 'recommended' methods over the years, then "went simple" and developed something new.

Since the hands are suspect I show both hands free an open by extending each hand wiggling my fingers, the reaching up and producing a coin from the air.

No mention of "empty" just something like, "I will need both hands and my fingers (wiggle one at a time, and a coin" (Sway Reverse Production)

If I need more coins, I drop that one into my left hand, then produce another. Then another added with clink, and so on.
No moves to the body and the producing hand shown completely empty (because it is) before the next grab from the air. (Naked Stack)

I later added a little flair move called "Pluck" that has the produced coin seem to appear floating in the air
and seized by the tips of the thumb and forefinger with the other spread wide.

No, I will not post a video; but will happily teach these methods live to anyone coming to Dandridge, Tennessee, USA
There is always painting to do and wood to chop. I am a good cook, too. Smile You have to love our Service Dogs though. Smile

BUT - one key is not to just produce coins for the sake of "from thin air" or a skill demonstration. It is a means to an end.

The effect done with the coins is the primary focus of the magic -- the production just a way of getting the needed coins.

It has always seemed silly to me to say you are a magician and them pull out of your pocket, do an effect, then put them aways, pull out a purse for more coins, etc.

You are a conjuror! If you need a coin, produce one. If you need more, grab a couple for somewhere, even a kid's ear.
If you have four and now only need three - vanish the extra one. Need a smaller coin? Shrink it.

You never mention doing anything special - just do it!

Thanks so much Funsway. First of all, if you do finger palm productions and they go over well, I am happy for you. But I recently thought of a test. Try this. Vanish a coin and hold it in finger palm for a group of kids. See how long it takes them to suspect something. Not long, usually. So the reverse is probably true. We should assume people to suspect something produced from finger palm that would easily fit there-- a coin.

Of course switching palms helps to make productions more deceptive. I have found the Mutobe palm to be very deceptive. People just believe your hand is empty.

If anyone sells a secret coin dropper that goes under your toupee or hair, let me know. hehe.

I would submit that finger palm is a natural hand position. Mutobe palm is not. Regardless, any hand position where the hand doesn't move and the coin remains in the same place is posing, and would indeed invite unwarranted attention.

Yes. Your point was clear. I have seen it done poorly as well, but it isn't because of the method- it is in the execution. The reason I dropped a name is because when David Williamson, (and others) do(es) it, it looks like real magic.
Watch a master execute it before you dismiss it.
