Topic: Loading a coin into hand question?
Message: Posted by: domclarke (Sep 6, 2009 07:10AM)
Hi. Would anyone be able to advise a suitable method/thoughts on the cleanest way to load a coin into my right hand. Here's the context:

A Coin is in the closed left hand, and known by spectators (they actually believe at this point there are 2 coins there - it is a coin unique which has been nested).
A second coin is hidden in right classic palm.

Whilst removing the coin unique from the left hand, I want to secretly load the classic palmed coin from the right hand into the left hand.

Hope that makes sense. Any advice greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
DC

If you pretend to put the coin from your left hand into your right hand but instead using the muscle pass to shoot it into your left hand it will give a click.

it will look like this.
then you've loaded the coin from your right hand in your left hand but the spectator believe that both coins are in your right hand.

Just do a changeover palm. Do I dare to mention the DVD sets where you can find it?

Changeover Palm.

Taught on many DVDs. Encyclopedia of coin sleights is a good set if you wish to learn solid coin moves.

All you need to do is while you pick up the coin in the left hand, simply let the Palmed coin fall out and land in the left hand. Let your left hand then drop to your side as all attention is on the coin you picked up at your right fingers.

The method Dan is suggesting is well described in Bobo, I think it it's called the "misers touch" where coins are repeatedly reloaded for a four coin production.

My Pivoting Changeover Palm will do exactly what you want. It's taught in my book 21st Century Coin Mechanics. It has excellent angles. Also the Flying Changeover Palm will accomplish the same but somewhat harder to learn. The FCOP is shown as a few short video clips:

I don't have the Pivoting Changeover Palm listed on the website yet but you can view a demo of it at:

You will have to switch left for right for your specific conditions.

The Pivoting Changeover Palm Video Clip is now also on my website at:

If you're familiar with the work of Horace Bennett, he teaches a very nice ( fairly standard, today ) change over palm in his book, The Bennett Touch. He first published the move around 1954.

I have a question why would you have two coins in the left and nest them to take it out just to put one coin back into the left ??????? Is this a way to get rid of the gimmick ???????

This book was my introduction to advanced coin technique. It surprised me that I was already doing a FCOP of sorts, but a slight change perfected it!

Really, if you don't have this book, you're missing out on some REALLY workable stuff! The Ultimate Retention Vanish for example...

'nuff said!
