I am thinking of upgrading from a one coin routine to a two coins routine using two of the same type of coins.

There are a number of one coin routines, but how about two coins routines? Tenkai Pennies, The Dance and an endless production are things that could go into such a routine. Can somebody point me to more interesting handlings of two ordinary coins?

Hi Stellan, you might check out my Ike & Mike's Revenge. It's a nice play with 2 like coins, or so I've been told. Smile

John Carney has a 2-coin routine in Carneycopia called "Half Dollars in the Mist". It's a pretty tough one, but you'll be way ahead getting this book. All the routines are excellent.

I found this nice two coin sequence while digging around on youtube. It looks hard though Smile

There are a few routines here but the one I mean is called '2 Coins'

I used to use 2 coins for my table hooping routine : I produced the fist coin in an invisible purse frame. Then I did a small miser's dream sequence where coins appeared from the ears of the spectators. The next sequence was a small coin across in the hand of the spec and I finished with a small one coin routine and a jumbo coin finale.

Hope it helps.

Instead of a two coin routine I like to do a one coin routine, and for a brief moment in the routine, ring in a second coin, thereby showing two coins as one. This concept is employed brilliantly by Roth in his little one coin routine and his use of the second coin just throws the audience for a loop. (As you probably know, he actually uses three coins in his one coin routine). Of course, I have to ditch the second coin before I end when I show just one coin to end it.

Showing two coins as one in a one coin routine would enable you for example, to do a quick perpetual production midway through which audiences seem to like, or a very visual penetration effect just not possible for me using only one coin, and lots of other interesting possibilities as well. Of course for this, shuttle passes, change overpalms and even s#%$^(*g might be required, depending on what you come up with.

A very brief use of a second coin can really enhance a one coin routine! It can be fun to design and just plain diabolical.

Something to think about perhaps.

To see a difficult thing lightly handled gives the impression of the impossible.

This is a little something I've done in the past. I can go into my one coin routine or this one. All depends how I

Marion: Thank you very much for that. I found some valuable moves in that routine that I can use and that I will put to work.

Ramin: Thanks for reminding me of that routine. I worked on it some years ago. I will use it again and aim for the same relaxed performance as John:

dr buzzard: Nice, but a little too angle sensitive for the purpose of my routine. It must stand the street.

Vayron: That seems like a good structure. Did you produce the first coin from the frame and the second from the spectator's ear?

chuck: That is a great ploy, but in this context I would have to have a third coin.

Tim: I am sorry, I got access to the site but the clip would not play.

Thanks again everyone, this gave me plenty to think about and work with.

I have always been enamored with the sleights that enable you to show one coin as two, two coins as one, and two coins as three, and all coins as none.

Somewhere in there is a two coin routine -- just have to construct it.

What I mean to say is the hand positions and display motions can be the same for each reveal.
