I've been afraid to show it for months now.I've performed it for laymen with very favorable reactions.often alone by myself all the time lead to depair.but often I focus too much and reflect and experiment for many hours.almost like an obsession.I have idea what other magicians think except I shared it with my friend ponta, he said it was intersting but needed a routine. I think its best used as a production .but I'm really happy because I really liked it myself.ponta told me some great advice that ive taken to heart.read and watch as many magic stuffs as possible.it gave me a lot of new ideas.I also like eric jones advice on metal 2.in this instance akira fuji was my main influence.mainly his innovative uses of the muscle pass.I used the same and applied it my own way.

I also have a new idea, going to make a "spellbound sandwich" with a chinese coin. Same thing, but with a chinese coin for contrast
which becomes the middle coin. I think it will look really nice

It's absolutely beautiful, I wonder why there aren't more replies in this thread. What are the angles like for this one? Do you have any routines in mind for it yet? The Spellbound Sandwich idea sounds great, what's the premise? Let us know!

Great job!

You might redo the video because of quality, its a little hard to see. IMO

This video has better quality and is the " sandwich spellbound" I created. recently I've managed to incorporate these into a routine...however, the routine in question requires other routines I've been practicing for 2 years now, although difficult, they are not ready to present. Regardless I will try to make a video of it. My other friend wants to see as well..

Let me know if that link doesn't work. It should.
I had trouble posting it before because it was my phone....lame phone restrictions sometimes.

Wow, thanks. That means alot. It feels good to have made something myself (and others) like.

I have a routine I use it in...as I said in the post above, but, as I told my friend here's what happens (effect):
The angles are pretty good, almost foolproof...it uses a kaps subtley.

Especially if they are looking down on your hands (which they should be).
How I use this to begin a routine. I use an eric Jones pop up production (with 2 coins instead of 1.), in the left hand. then I talk about chinese food...and americans obsession with it. I tell the audience although I can't produce chinese FOOD, I can produce the next best thing (Ok, not really..) chinese coins!

So I say, when I tap the coins 3 times, something interesting will happen. I tap the coins, once, twice, thrice. No dice. Nothing happens. So, I try again, this time expecting something different. On the third time this second time, a chinese coin is produced (inside/nestled) in a fan of 2 morgan dollars, as well as a morgan dollar being produced at the same time. This all uses a principle that I applied differently from Akira fuji.

Here's the whole in its context:
Now I have 4 coins, 3 morgan dollars and a chinese coin in a fan.

I put the morgans down. I take the chinese coin, do the dynamic back thumb palm vanish, show both hands empty and do a transfer. From here, I do your transfer sequence (shown in your vanish trick). I produce the coin in a production (using your vanish routine).

From there, I take the stack and roll them flourish, each coin cascading down knocking the other down (like domino's) to reverse the order of the coins. The chinese coin is now at the bottom. I tell the spectator's to imagine taking the chinese out again, and hanging it in the air. I do your display of 3 coins . It has indeed vanished. I then go into your 3 fly, but instead of producing a morgan, I produce a chinese coin. This goes into a spellbound, morgan changing to chinese. And ends, instead , with another morgan being produced on a fan of the other coins. The coins are displayed, fanned, and the trick has ended.

Note: I Also had an idea on the "domino style" flourish where the coins cascade by turning one over. this is very similiar to done with cards, like the turnover move/flourish used in casinos to overturn a bunch of cards laid out together (touching each other) from face down to face up. But I made a little change. Instead of just turning the coins over, if you place the coins in the hand a certain way, you can get the last coin (the chinese coin, for example) as the coins cascade, to create a domino effect and cause the last coin to roll off the hand, into the other waiting hand. I thought it was a strange and interesting idea to get another coin ready for a trick you might want to do.

The coin disappearance and subsequent reappearance was very impressive.
