Double cross end permanently in the end of your spectator. Bare could be in this category too.

I have several effects ending with a "vanish to empty"in a spectator's hand,
but given that many notable magicians say this is impossible, I will not list them.

There is also a many finger ring effects that happen in their hands.

"Changing coins" could include both "Color changes" and "Transpositions" and "multiply or reduce" either size or quantity

Many mental magic/mentalism effects are specific as to "in their hand."

I would suggest that any complete list should embrace the concept that "in their hand" is different from "not in yours"

sponge balls are great. Double cross works fine. I haven't try it but I think that a deck of card changing into an omnideck would be strong.
Aslo, Gaston Quieto has a ring on spectator's finger which should just kill. He explains it in his penguin lecture.

Iíve got to go with the pendulum suggestion by Escamoteur. When that weight on a chain starts moving, it seems so impossible. When it changes direction, that hits hard.

I think it is important to establish a reason for using the pendulum, but that can be as simple as just showing an amazing curiosity. I will either lead into a reading or into a living/dead test. Either way, the pendulum makes a selection and does it in their hand.
