Anyone have any good folding coin ideas or routines besides coin in a bottle? I have heard of an improved version of Tic Tac (from Paul Harris and the AoA books) that uses a folding coin. Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Allan

I've sometimes wished I had a flipper coin. so in the mean time until I get one, I take a folding coin, make it look like two in one hand, Toss it to the other and making one disappear. Just pointless time wasters like that. Smile

I don't own either of the following books, but I do recall reading reviews published by Jeff Busby about the following two books:

"Sleightly Original" (Tom Gagnon)
"The Tipnician" (Bob Chesbro)

From what I can recall both books contained a number of ideas and effects using folding coins that went beyond the 'coin in bottle' premise.

I don't know if it's even made anymore, but, years ago, the folding coin was used in a coin-producing wand for the Miser's Dream.
cheers,

Coolmoney84,

In regards to your first post, Mark Mason has a video called "Real World Magic", Vol. 1, in which he does a killer coins across using a folding coin. The coin he uses folds once slightly off center. Not the same as a coin in bottle.

You made me think of that in your first post. I wish I could recall what type of coin it was he was using.

JP-

I own both of those books and can recommend them heartily--if you can find them.

I have a hanging coins routine that uses a folding coin in an unusual way. It's currently on the Coin Purse website at

Page 291 in Bobo's: Coin Through Card - a ring can be substituted for the card.

I have used this routine with my wedding ring a few times.

Greatest trick with a coin is to take a bite out of it (use a folding coin...don't really take a bite out of a coin, that would be stupid)

Thanks for the idea. Substituting a ring actually makes the illusion stronger, since a ring cannot bend and stretch the way that a card can.

The Money Mint is another trick described in Bobo for anyone looking to do something different with a f. coin. What's very nice about Ring Through Card and the Money Mint is that it's easier to pass off that you're using a real coin. Of course, they both require some good sleights to pull off.

Adding to what Brian Proctor said, you can take a folder, and ex [ and some blue tac and make a decent flipper.

Not sure but I think at the beginning of the "Coin Classics", Bobo descibes both the original folding coin, and the 'new' method for coin through ring. Always thought the one with the card might work well with business cards?
