A simpler alternative is to use three coins for a "Hummer cups" routine, with a small piece of paper under one of the coins.

Use 3" Jumbo coins. Now it's just like the disc monte.

A possible advancement, though I was not thinking of this effect specifically during sleight development.
I have been perfecting a new handling of a coin to show both sides in a natural manner or as a handing off to the other hand as a natural take.
In the process a coin can be switched, the same side shown twice or another coin secretly passed on or back.

This method is now i;n the hands of several magician friends to provide feedback and refinement.

For this effect, instead of all coins being blank and the sticker only shown as desired, all three coins could have stickers
and only the desired one shown NOT to be blank on both sides. Coin with hole can work here as noted years ago.

I think something along similar strategic lines has been done, on a somewhat bigger scale.
I've watched the following vid probably 27X and I have come to the conclusion that what you are suggesting is being employed.
Don't want to talk about secrets here and the operator sometimes posts on this forum. But I'm guessing it would be even easier with smaller coins as you are suggesting.

Thanks for that. Same idea but different moves. I would say that here two of the disks have spots -
you can catch flash on video never seen in live action.. I will rethink my approach based on two rather than all three
with several different false display moves,

I am influence some by Russian Rings that use multiple ploys to conceal the actual nature of the objects.

How about using three magnetic quarters and discs of paper which are punched from a sheet of paper (so the discs are identical. The paper is made from two pieces of regular paper which sandwich iron filings...or maybe there is a paper to which a magnet is attracted(?)
