For years I loved Coins Across more than Matrix. But when I saw Rannie Raymundo's Matrix, "4 coins, 4 cards, 1 hand", http://www.vinnymarini.com/download/4coins.html it really blew me away. He really caught me off guard. To me honest, even if I was on guard it would have still blown me away. I had to watch it over and over again repeatedly. Another reason I would give it a plus is because it was not confusing like some of the two handed Matrix.

How about "Across the Void," by Paul Wilson (a download from his site). It's a three coins across routine with no extras. The last two coins go in sequence without any intermediary counting or handling.

It's pretty much a perfect impromptu coin routine.

I have a hellava time determining if my brother Rannie is using gaffs or not since for every gaffed routine of his he has at least 1 gaffless version and they ALL rock!

Capt'n Feher, Brother Smooth and the Godfather himself have to many dazzling effects between em to name!

The current faves that I do personally are Tim's Mystery Box and a Coins Across ala Al Schneider (love that pop up) with a touch of Rannie! MB's Blow change will always be my all time favorite transpo!

Thank you for your kind words Dynamike and Mick!
My fav has got to be my 4 coins across and my Not So Gaffless Hopping Halves...and my Totally Gaffless Hopping Halves.

I still love gaddabout coins.

Mabuhay from Manila!

A clean and simple Matrix with a great presentation, proper framing, and no superfluous manipulation of the coins always gets my vote.

Wild coin by Roth is one of my favourites.

However I like impromptu coin magic you can do on the hands of the spectator. I believe that a good coins accross using spectator hands can be direct and effective

I agree with Furniture.
I like to play with spectators with hands, shoulders, watch, pocket, etc ...
One of my favorite coins routine that I perform is based on the Greg wilson's routine called "Quick Silver".
I've changed some effects. The first effect that has really a good impact is the coin that I put on the back of the hand of the spectator without feeling nothing.
Back hand, then on the shoulder, after this the coin falling from the sky and, the last, coin under the watch. It kills Smile
Sometimes, when the trick is over, I want to get back my coin under the watch. I use a shuttle pass when I take the coin. So, you can perform another trick with a big advantage Smile
May the magic be with you

Hanging coins also a favorite here too. It's fun to watch spectators eyes fly back and forth trying to figure out where the heck the coins went. Winged silver and chink a chink are also great.

Come to think of it I have to say that I really like doing my "3asy Does It," "KrazyKoinZ Across," "The Mb Transpo" and "Li'l One Coin Jammy." These are some of the routines that I do the most out there.

They aren't difficult, not long and drawn out and just feel good to do on the move anywhere and always to great response and instant amazement.

I've got a few more personal favorites, like anything with the "Crimp Change" in it Smile and something I've been playing with lately I simply call, "My Fly." More on that later. Smile

These are some of my favorite things. Smile

Wow, this is a thread from the past. Looks like Gadabout is fairly popular about other magicians. I know it's popular with me.

Wow, guys! When I first started reading this thread, I thought, hmmm...I bet there are some good ones in here!

Now, after finishing, I realize...I was right! You guys blow me away! I mean, Gadabout Coins is great, no doubt, but you've taken this FAR beyond my capabilities!

My coin routine is simple. It varies, depending on my venue and spectators, but really, with Ike Dollar coins, it's a two part.

One coin vanishes four different ways, CP (with changeover), French Drop, ROV, and a one-handed vanish I picked up from Kainoa Harbottle. Then,

Coins Across (four coins), and I don't know where I got the sleight for the three coins, as I can't find it any where, including Modern Coin Magic. It may have been a Roth or Rubinstein sleight...when you get to TWO coins, the click pass (first one) from MCM is the one I use. The last one is an ROV, and I do the Mickey Silver "prove" (showing the coin again) before the last one goes...

Recently, I've been playing with quarters, and have gotten some astounding reactions...

given that the spectator desires to be entertained, probably doesn't care whether he figures out what you are doing or not, already has a sense of magic within that is kindled by your peresence -

with only one good sleight to your credit you could show up every week and do a new effect to thundrous applause simply by changing the object, the other props involved and your witty banter. When you weary of quarters try walnuts or dinner mints. It is the change in you that makes the difference, and your sense of boredom that will bore the audience. Or so it seems to me ...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Spellbound. I love performing David Roth's routine with some additions I've made. I can't think of anything more magical than (apparently) 1 coin changing colors, or denomination, or size, then changing back over and over. And if you get good, you can throw in 2 or more changes like a silver coin going to copper, then to brass, then back to silver.

A very doable, well constructed spellbound is Micahel Rubenstein's Silver Lint IV. I get such good reactions from the specs with this little routine. My favorite spellbound routine. Michael teaches this on one of the NY Coin Seminar dvds. Later, on the same DVD, he uses candy mints and it presents as a completely different routine. Good example of what Funsway is talking about above.

Agreed...spellbound type routines play very very well to specs. A little variety after getting them going a bit with a few other kinds of routines.
To see a difficult thing lightly handled gives the impression of the impossible.
