Have been playing around with a couple of 3 coin vanish routines. One uses gimmicked coins and there is no reappear, but you are left clean (for the most part). The other is more like a 3 coin vanish and reappear, which therefore somewhat makes it a 3 across. Just wanted to get you guys's take on a nice quick routine with different endings and which you prefer? Both of these are done by prolific magi, by the way.

I like the reappear version ungimmicked.

You could also check out Chris Kenner's Totally out of control. There are a few great routines in there...3 coin vanishes, one with a kicker ending, as well as 3 Fly and the Deep. All good routines.

I also think Ponta the Smith has a 3 coin routine, but I am not sure, I don't own his DVD.

Eric Jones's Oxy Clean Coin Routine and Homer Liwag's CoinTwo are awesome routines that look utterly impossible. Both are generally done with gaffs, but CoinTwo has a version that is done with 3 regular coins and sleeves which is almost as deceptive. I also quite enjoy Michael Vincent's 3 coin routine (no gaffs), which was on volume 2 of his Rhapsodies in Silver and Other Mysteries set. He has some ingenious ways of shuttling coins and his second vanish is particularly well constructed.

Ponta's 3 coin routine is a 3 coins across, which is one of my favorite coins across.

Id have to vote for Liwag's CoinTwo. Great three coin production and vanish and reproduction sequence. Also take a look at some of Troy Hoosers work!

Marion Boykins "Grandpa Coins 2" is a sweet routine with appearances and vanishes of three ungaffed coins. Nice little routine.

Į agree with all of the above. Michael Vincents routine (based on rune klans I think) is great and has many phases. Coin Two is a nice clean routine. But if you want a quick, visual routine with no gaffs that can be done anywhere then Marions is the way to go. One of my favourites.

For just fooling around that looks pretty dern magical to me.
In Williamson's Wonders there are two ungaffed three coin appearance/vanish/ re-appear routines. One is When You're Behind You're Ahead and the other is Money Talks. Both are very fun and magical.

I totally agree with the above about Cointwo. I own both of Homer Liwag's coin dvds and they are both incredible

I have MB's Granpas Coins 2....I didn't think to seek there for this. I have playing around with C. Kenners 3-Fry effect (with no gaffs), and one from Joshua Jay. I know H.Liwags and Pontas work is astounding, not sure I have the skill yet for them...Thanks for the replies.....good stuff!

Chris Kenner's Three Fry is a nifty little Vanish and Production of three coins and Gary Jones and Chris Congrieve have some great ideas with a three coin production, three fly and three coin vanish in their DVD, Flying Tonight - great stuff!
To see a difficult thing lightly handled gives the impression of the impossible.

A couple of thoughts.

If you take the coins from a pocket or purse then a reproduction and returning to the pocket or purse is fine.

If the coins are magically produced then a complete vanish where they return to the unknown is fine.

Do I always do routines this way? No but I think it's a couple of nice ways to do routines.

Geoff latta's A Trick With Three Coins is a classic. You can find it in volume one of the NYCMS DVD series. I have a few versions out myself. Check out Triple Play on volume 5, Deja Vu coin vanish on volume 11, and my new Sliding Wild coin, on our next set of DVD's, which is a three coin production, change to copper, change to silver, then 3 coin vanish. No gaffs, I don't know the meaning of the word.

Thanks for the kind comments about my Grandpa's Coins 2. I think another just wonderful 3 coin routine along these lines is Justin Miller's "Silver Dream." Very nice moves that were very inspiring to me. Smile

It's not secret. The new set of dvd's , volumes
14, 15, and 16, are entitled Methods, Performances, and Presentations. They contain routines by myself, Roth, Gallo, Brewer, Franzis, Fitch, and additional material by Citino, Watkins, DeSouza, and more! The theory by Fitch one is worth more than the price of the dvds

No, but I hope it will be out by the middle of February! In addition to Roth's Asian coin Act, hightlights include a great coin bending routine that won't set you back hundreds of dollars, some fantastic Okito box stuff by Gallo, Two versions of a classic card plot that has been transformed into a coin trick, a NEW idea for the Cylinder and Coins by Jean Emmanuel Franzis, a fabulous translocation effect by Doug Brewer, Voodoo revelation, now the closing routine for my act, Bob Fitch talking about stuff that is so important for the coin worker, as well as giving up a couple of his pet routines, and so much more!Close to 40 routines will make up this set, with bonus material -we have so much good stuff, its hard to select the few pieces we include with each set!

Perhaps it depends on what is motivating the coin vanish behavior. Is it the coins? A nervous tic of yours? Are you making them vanish? If so, why? More importantly what's in it for the audience?

Thanks Jonathan....I, myself...as a amateur magician have been astonished by these routines ever since I returned to magic aprox. 6 mo. ago. The premise of money will probably be my whole close-up/parlor act, with a timely economic wrinkle. I don't have a nervous tic...yet! The audience will hopefully get a combo confuse/amaze vibe. These seem to be the main motivations...
