Is there a coin matrix with only a number of coins and your hands - no cards?

Check the search engine for shadow coins.

John Born, Dean Dill and many others have routines as do Michael Ammar.

Chink a Chink with sugar cubes,dice or similar object could have been a starting point for the coins and hands only.

Enjoy the magic and the journey.

I heard there was one, it uses 10 coins and you need six hands. You start by making a 3x3 array of coins. Then you and a spec and a spec (really an assistant) with an extra coin do something that kind of resembles a game of twister. Never got popular though. Much easier to just do the trick the way Al Schnieder designed it.

I saw a guy do a version in Tannens once with just his hands on the carpet, fingers spread. You could actually see the coin arrive under his hand before it left from under the other hand. It was friggin awesome. I still wish to someday find him and hogtie him til he teaches me it.

Sounds like you saw "shadow coins", Michael Ammar's variation on David Roth's "Chink-a-Chink". It IS a great routine. If you do a search you can find where it's published and then learn it without having to commit battery.

There is a guy named Joe Rindfleisch who has a killer version of the trick (really two versions) and he visits Tannens on occasion.

Not so sure anyone is going to do any magic around you though. Not many are into getting hogtied or even annoyed for methods.

Ditto on the original with 4 cards ala Schnieder.

That is the one I use. Sometimes I do the reverse ending.

I can't remember who to credit on the version I use.

KISS. Keep it simple in life and magic.

it would help if you gave us a link showing Ray Nobel, don't know how he is. Your post, while appealing, doesn't really help without knowing what you're talking about.

One of my friends does a great routine. Which is cool cause he's invisible. You have to wear a hat though. <g> It helps to be a rabbit too.

I know this guy who changes a silver coin into a copper with the use of a substitution trunk....which he produces from his pants.
To see a difficult thing lightly handled gives the impression of the impossible.

Is an English copper a 'bobby' or a 'penney'? I wouldn't want to insult one after they make an appearance from those pants. Do they come in both straight legs and pleats?

The ones that I know of are Shadow Coins on the Ammar Series, David Roth's which is what Michael Ammar based his routine off of (it's basically the same except for one key thing), The ones on Dean Dill's Coins 2000 video, and David Stone's on his video Coin Magic vol 2. There's more but those are the ones I've seen so far.

Ray Kosby has a reverse matrix with no Cards in his "Wow It's Ray Kosby" video. It uses no gimmicks, however, It is pretty complicated.

Chink-a-chink by David Roth (The coin version, not the sugar cube version) uses no cards and only your hands.


Michael Ammar came up with Shaodw Coins for those 'in the know' about maybe extra coins.


Dean Dill has a routine called Call Shot, that looks like Shadow Coins on steroids. Beatiful routine.


Ray Kosby has his reverse matrix, which inspired Dean Dill to come up with Explosion. (First with 16 coins, then the true explosion with like 30 coins.)


Not sure about too many other versions out there.


Though I know Scotty York had a chink-a-chink where you ditch the extra help a little sooner than in Roth's version.


And Goshman does it with bottle caps, which I think makes it easier to do, and makes it seem impromptu.


David Williamson has a version where you pick up the coins off the table, which I like using at the restaurant. (No worries about the sliding noise)

I also have a Shadow coins effect with a clean backfire and all at once assebly that is totally different than anything out as far as I know...I've seen Dill's, Born's, and MOST others. Best part is at the end it's examinable...no there will be NO videos put up just in case I do decide to release it someday.

There is a great version using four manhole covers and a pair of Domino's Pizza delivery signs in Superman comic #396. Of course, you have to be Superman to do it. And then there is the problem with lapping that extra manhole cover. ;-)
