Looking for a coin (one or multiple) routine/sequence/vanish/handling that uses half dollars; doesn't involve gaffs; isn't 3-fly-ish or overly coins-across-ish; is on the slow and fluid side rather than speedy and frenzied; doesn't require special clothing; is taught well on a download or DVD; and is suitable for an intermediate-to-skilled coin worker. Thanks, everyone!

An Okito type box can allow for many routines and themes. A Boston Box even better

Check with Dave Neighbors. As simple or complex as you wish to make it.

Thank you for those ideas. (Where can I find that Schneider matrix routine explained?)

Also, interested in something involving just coins (no table or props).

Paul Harris has a great "quickie" variation of Al Schneider's Matrix, called Giant Killer Coin.

You might also check Ron Bauer's, "Gadabout Coins Revisited" version. Seems to fit what you're looking for and is a nice effect using multiple half dollars. I know the more basic play of this can also be found in Bobo's.

You sound like you have a plot, criteria and know what you want. I think it would be great for you to research thru reading etc.and learn the moves, sleights, patter , personality to accomplish this. You will be very fulfilled and learn lots. yoy will become a better performer, make it your own.

Hanging coins? Not too hard and very aesthetic?..

Probably the one I think best meets your criteria is my Triple Play, on the Penguin Live lecture or the NYCMS dvd series. It is a three coin appearance, vanish, appearance, is EXTREMELY clean, no gaffs, and not done fast. Good patter as well. Check it out. Also have n same two places a routine called sliding wild coin, with a three coin production, change to three copper coins, and then a three coin vanish. No gaffs, and your hands look clean, also very easy!
Available at dealers EVERYWHERE - RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC- The biggest book on coin magic since Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, and the most important since David Roth's Expert Coin Magic! Hardbound, 500 pages, 20 chapters of state of the art coin magic illustrated with 930 crisp photos! A contribution chapter from over 20 of the world's top coin magicians! This will be the book against which all future books on coin magic will be measured! Already called a Modern Classic!!
And if anyone (USA ONLY) needs some of the coin stuff used in the book, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com as I have some limited supplies of coins and props used on the book.

Rune Klan has several such routines in his DVD "3 Pieces of Silver" - complete coin routines designed for table hopping
