I am just getting into coin magic and could use a really good training tool to learn some good sleights. Any recommendations?

A few good coin dvd's

Eric Jones: Metal
Michael Ammar: Complete Intro to Coin Magic
Ben Salinas: Modern Coin Magic

are all great dvd's I have all of them, and they all have a unique way to explain the slieght of hand. I haven't seen Dr. Michael Rubinstein's dvd's yet, but they are next on my to buy list...

How has Bobo not been mentioned yet?
It was one of the first magic books I got, recommended to me as a beginner. It's what I learned on.
It is now dog-eared, worn at the corners, and discolored in places. It remains the magic book I refer to most often.

Because the original post asked for DVDs...

You are right though: As far as books go, Modern Coin Magic by Bobo and also, Expert Coin Magic by David Roth, are two of the best.

David Stone's two coin DVDs are worth looking into.

I love the David Stone DVDs but some of the material may be too difficult for some beginners.

Huh. For some reason my post got deleted.
Very odd, it was on topic, and in no way confrontational.

Welp, let's try again.
Bobo's modern coin magic has been turned into a four volume dvd set, it sells on penguin for $70.

The Encyclopedia of Coin Sleights is the way to go. Dr. Rubinstein does a great job teaching. This is the set of dvds that I reference whenever I need/want to look at a particular sleight. Everything you'll ever need to be shown/taught is here. It's a great learning set.

Also, Dr. Rubinstein is a member of The Magic Café and has shown over the years that he's more than willing to help those who ask. He's a class act and a GREAT addition to The Magic Café.

100% agree! Also remember the New York Coin Magic Seminar Series as well! Although The Encyclopedia of Coin Sleights is a must, you should also have Knockout Coin Magic by Dr. Rubinstein! It shows his sleights "in action", if you will.

Go here to get The New York Coin Magic Seminar Series:

and here to get the The Encyclopedia of Coin Sleights:

And while you're there, scroll down and check out FUSION. That's one of my favorite coin effects! Smile

There are so many good places nowadays to find this information, many have been mentioned here over and over again like Bobo's New Modern Coin Magic book that was put into DVD form featuring magician Ben Salinas. And check Ben here on the Café if you're a beginner, he might still have a real bargain on his Modern Coin Magic 4 DVD set, PM him here and tell him Mb sentcha. Smile

I would also suggest at an inexpensive DVD, Michael Ammar's Complete IntrodDuction to Coin Magic. It's pretty complete and won't cost you much but teach you a lot and give you the tools to know and do even more. Smile

I was wondering in these magic clubs do they offer classes that go over the basics or help one Tto improve from wherever they are in this stuff? Personally I think having a mentor would help immensely. I never had one butncan see how having someone help you with this stuff would make things much more clear, more quickly. It would still all take good practice to make stuff work right but it all would sure help in better understanding. Wish I had a mentor, even moreso than a book or DVD. Though I admit the more information available the better.
