I really enjoy my one coin routine that I adapted from techniques I learned on Homer Liwag's CoinTwo...I think it looks best with a silver dollar, and I finish it with a jumbo...or I could do it with a borrowed quarter and instead of a jumbo, my cell phone is a nice kicker.

But I love Menage et trois, three fry(with the english penny change), and the deep from Totally Out of Control.
Chris Kenner's material is incredible!

I don't know if the Sudbury Penny would be a "gaff", per se, but it's the size of a Silver Dollar (Ike).

I've been doing Spellbound with that for over six years. Before that, I had a (Chinatown Half) regular Chinese coin and Half Dollar that Spellbounded pretty well.

Ya know...a C/S Quarter-Halfpenny would be good for spellbound, quarter-sized.

Lassen/Schoolcraft is out of my price range. Johnson Products, as far as I know, doesn't make one.

You're right, Prototype, Roth is the one who got me started on Spellbound...then Rubinstein...major kudos to those guys...

I know it is really not great for walk around or table work, but I love David Roth's Portable Hole.

I'll have to plug myself, too. My favorite is my ungaffed version of Scotch and Soda. Contact me for more info. It's FREE!!!

To do it right, you need a $20 gold piece, a very old English penny and a Barber half. You can substitute a silver dollar for the gold coin if you must.

There are too many to mention.

Coins Through Silk Ammar Version and Chris Power's Version
Cardini Steal
One Coin Routine with complete vanish (to Jumbo Coin if I have it)
David Roth's Advanced Copper Silver (Ungimmicked)(ETMCM 3)
Coin Production - Ammar's Sonic Squeeze
Mike Skinner's Slo-Mo Coin Vanish
David Roth Fugitive Coins
Silver Dollar to Halves to quarters (sawa/gallo)
Gary Kurtz Copper Silver COntinuation
David Williamson - Money Talks (with wand)
David Roth Chinese Coin Assembly
Mike Rubinstein Magnetic Coins (I am not sure if that's what it's called)
Daryl's Coin Routine from Spectatcle (elbow,knee and neck or something like that)
David Roth 3 Coin Click Pass (aka they both go across)
Twilight - Paul Harris
My Stand-up version of David Roth Purse and Glass
Matrix - Many variations

Spellbound.(many variations)(Garrett, roth, rubinstein,kam,ammar,gertner, Thomas, Marion Boykin etc)

I often use ideas from Marc De Souza's Morphing and mention that (after producing Morgan Dollars) those coins are quite heavy in the pocket and I'm sure people wishd they were a little "Lighter". I spellbound change the coins into a sterling silver mini zippo lighter. It always gets a reaction.

If I have silk on me I do coin through ring

There is much more. everything depends on venue. - Markr

How about pretty much anything with coins by Slydini. I know you have to be seated, but it was/is great stuff

A couple of favorites of mine are Derek Dingle's International Coins Through Table and Four Coins and counting from Dingle's Deceptions.

Back in the late 1980's (I think), Brian Gillis did a coins across on Johnny Carson. I added a couple of couple of things to it, and it has been my favorite coin routine ever since then. The majority of the routine is in Bobo's. I also like my own Okito Box routine and One-Coin Routine With a Jumbo Finish. Smile

It's amazing how many young coin men got their start from watching Brian Gillis on the Tonight Show, especially since it wasn't even intended to be an instructional video.

Those who work without gaffs can truthfully claim that "no coins were harmed in the making of this performance". Save the Silver!

I love to do a ungaffed version of Hopping Halves. If there is a table available...Coins Thru Table. With a spectator...Coins to Spectator's Hands.

There are a lot more I love to do when performing for my magic buddies. For the most part when I perform for laymen...I stick with strong sure fire magic.
