Hi guys,
I am new to jumbo coin sleights and manipulation so I am looking for some useful sources to begin learning. Any good suggestions please?
Thanks in advance.

You mean like in Fred Kaps and those guys acts back in the 1960s?
After you produce a Jumbo coin it's a downhill slide as a magical surprise (a giant coin) becomes just another prop.

It's as you pointed out - more manipulation than magic for the most part - and borrows heavily from card and cigarette manipulation methods. There are a couple of recent books that discuss some of the basics that you could just as well learn from older sources on billiards, thimbles etc.
...to all the coins I've dropped here

Shoot Ogawa has a good routine on Cultural Xchange (see clips on youtube). It is a 4 jumbo coin production that doesn't do lots of fancy manipulation.

Garrett Thomas has a great close up routine. Hiyashi has a production sequence of a large number of jumbo coins. Joe Jesse has a DVD devoted just on Jumbos. Of course there's Gary Kurtz' Let's get Flurious.

I think Cd manipulation slights can be used in jumbo coins as well. There some videos about CDs manipulation.
Lu Chen has video called "Jumbo Coins Manipulation"
I find this video :
but unfortunately his website gives error when you try to see products.

There are a few jumbo coin moves on the encyclopedia of coins sleights DVD series. There is a routine called Jumbo 4 coins through table on the Knockout Coin Magic DVD, as well as in print in Best of Friends II by Harry Lorayne.

I recommend Gary Kurtz' work on the subject. If you can get a hold of his book from Richard Kaufman, Unexplainable Acts, do yourself a favor and get it.

Lots of other good coin work in Unexplainable Acts, too. You get his Flurious down, then you've a great piece of magic there.
