Hi everybody. I would like to put together a nice Coins to Glass routine for the real world. I have been working on Shoot Ogawa's from Cultural XChange 2, and I have played with Dean Dill's as well. I would like to compile as many sources and ideas as I can to make the routine the best it can be. I will use gimmicks too! Thank you in advance!

Have you looked at the classics, Vernon, Buckley, Ramsay and also the Kennedy thing?

I haven't checked out the Kennedy coins to glass, or the Ramsay texts (Very hard to find!). I am familiar with the others. I have walked through most of them with coins in hand. I will have to check out the routines you mentioned that I am not familiar with. Thank you for your help, Mr. Townsend.

There is a clip of 'Sonic Silver' on John Kennedy's site. The Ramsay coins to glass is on the first of the Galloway videos.

You can find the Richard Ross version on volume 27 of the Stevens “Greater Magic Video Series”.

Danny Korem’s version can be found in his book “Korem Without Limits”.

Tarbell had a version similar to the one put out years later by Kennedy. It’s called “Passe Coins and Glasses” and is found in volume 2 on page 112.

Jim Cellini has a straightforward version in his book “The Royal Touch”. Plus he has an interesting gimmicked version that he sells from time to time and shows on the “London Lecture” videotape.

Not really a coins to glass but Ross Bertram has a single coin penetrating the bottom of a glass move in his “Magic and Methods of Ross Bertram”. It looks good when placed in a coins to glass routine. Plus Bertram's book has enough coin handling tips and moves to develop your own coins to glass routine.

Is this enough for a start?

How about Fred Kaps version in 'Routined Manipulation Finale' by Lewis Ganson.

... and if willing to go gimmicked all the way... the amazing 'Copenetro'!

Jon, I remember when I first got started in magic, and went to the magic shop in the next town (The Magic Den, some from around here may remember?) and the guy that was working there at the time, performed a quick demo for Copenetro I was blown away! I miss that feeling sometimes.

For a really good C2-glass routine you might want to have a look at David Acer's "Money Flies" from his first book "Natural Selections)

I would really like to hear more about Kennedy's coins to glass. I was talking with some professional magicians after our monthly meeting and coins to glass came up. They said that Kennedy's is amazing and is done at a distance. Is this sonic silver or something else?

John Kennedy's original Coins to Glass used three coins, typically quarters, and a glass. The first coin travels across, and is heard to arrive in the glass, while the magician holds the glass. The second does the same, but only the spectator is holding the glass. The third coin travels to the glass while nobody touches it. It's sitting on the table. Very near perfect, and extremely practical. I think it's still available from John.

Sonic Silver is one of John's later approaches. It also features the transit of three coins, but into an opaque mug. The mug is on the table the whole time. It's an illusion that would normally require extensive mechanical work, but John has figured out a fairly simple method. It's not easy to manage, but it's a good illusion. Then the coin is heard to arrive in the mug, the magician is motionless, yet he controls the sound. No electronics.

Just a thought....but maybe try Roth's Champagne glass concealment for something different.

What about Troy Hoosier's coins to glass. I know that its in his lecture notes and on the DVDs. I use every day and it rocks. The reactions are strong and it is very visual.

Props to Mike Gallo's "Psychological Coins to Glass". From his lecture notes. Very cool and way ahead.

A very visual version by Daniel Cros which combines coins-to-glass with coins-through-glass was in a recent issue of MAGIC (I think it was February).

David Stone has one on volume 2 of his coin magic videos. I think it's a bit more involved in the video than in his lecture (i'm not sure about the one in Boston, but when he lectured here he did a reduced version). I also like Scott Guinn's ideas with this routine.
