You can see how the R.O.P.S. move is used in proper context in this routine, filmed at the Magic Castle.

Whoops, I see I posted that example earlier in this thread. Oh well, here's another one (and yes, they are all in the new book).

The coin doesn't turn over before the move, unless you want to turn over the coin before performing it.
Mike, let's say you place the coin on the palm of your hand, say your magic word, then open your hand and the coin is still there. You then reach over, with second finger on top and thumb below, to the edge of the coin nearest you, and turn the coin over. Are you then in the right position to do the sleight?
...to all the coins I've dropped here

So yes, that would be akin to the R.O.P.S. retention pass, where the coin is actually placed into the hand with the thumb and second finger (you can see that done with the series of vanishes I had posted). But you would be better off opening your hand, just touching the coin to indicate it (as opposed to turning it over), and performing the R.O.P.S. move. That way there would be no apparent way to remove the coin from the hand, since it is already there. That would be the function of the move, to vanish the coin once it is already in the hand, and avoid having to do a transfer. Once you pick up the coin and turn it over, you are performing a false transfer.
