A variation on David Roth's 'Wild Coin'.

I like it and the container you were speaking about shades them nicely, eliminating the need for an opaque cup.

Thanks! I really like the look of the jar.

I think it's probably important to not pour them directly out at the end like in the original though. I trailed off a little here, but I'm thinking that pouring them in the hand like I did is the better option. Still a work in progress of course.

Nice work, well done buddy. I use a standard wine glass and place a silk over it to make it opaque. It's nice with the final reveal too as when you remove the silk, it appears the coins all change back in the glass! Using a standard wine glass also avoids me having to take with me another container when going from table to table.
Magically,

Oh that's a nice idea too! Thanks for sharing.

Agree that it's not too practical to carry around a jar, especially since you can't even really carry anything in it without giving away the subtlety.

Great Job!
Suggestion: Introduce a couple of Ramsey Subtleties while you are Talking about the visible coin at shoulder level.
This way, you can use the hand with concealed coin, casually pointing to the visible coin. Without saying it, they get a quick view of the apparently empty hand.

Happy Coining!
