What kind of coin effects are magicians using on the street, and what are the reactions? Also, what problems have there been with spectators, wanting to inspect coins, hecklers etc. Do you magically produce coins, or does that seem a bad idea. If you can produce coins from thin air, why are you busking?

I'm planning on trying Michael Ammar's "See Through Coins through Silk"

It's very open, visual, and can be done with hands outstretched right in their faces without being detected.

I'm also thinking about producing the three coins and after they pass through the silk, giving them away to the kids who helped. It'll only cost me .75 per show (more if I use halves) but the good will fostered might pay off even better when hat time comes around.

Great, your right it is a very visual effect, and I hope it pays off.

I think Cellini's devils napkin (name is something like that) is excellent!

Coins disappear into a silk, and then reappear audibly and visibly one at a time, after the silk is shown "empty".

I am hoping this is on the new DVD, but I think it also on the London lecture video.

It's on the DVD. It's a KILLER effect with some nice patter. It could be very strong, VERY strong. Enjoy it bro. The DVD is on its way, in the mail today. Hope you like it.

Let me know.

None yet, James, but I am. And in about two weeks you will find it at the local shop I would think. They will be shipped to the distributor in the next week, and then a week or two to get the local stores. If you want one quicker, send me an e-mail.

magicman1234@hotmail.com and I will send you one.

I would go for a type of coins across using the spectators hands by using the methods from David Roth or David Stone and maybe do Han Ping Chien or a 2 coin travel routine. Either way they all work well for a few reactions.

The coin roll is a good thing to use to draw a crowd. So is the Downs Coin Star. Bobby Bernard's book has the real work.

I do Roth's coins across on my table ending with a jumbo half in spec's hand via Han Ping Chien. Use it once in a while to stop the first few with a close up trick.

None better than the Chanin routine where he produces continuously, jumbo coins from a single handkerchief. Cervon uses it in close up, but it would be PERFECT on the street.

Thanks

One issue that you will find working on the streets with silks is the wind. Makes it tough somtimes, but bro is right. The silk routine is great for the streets. Jim has talked about the Chanin routine.

BroDavid, About the easiest place to find the Chanin routine is in David Haversat’s book “Chanin, The Man With The Magic Hands.” It contains almost all of Jack Chanin’s work. The three shell game, the cigar routine, the silk routines, and his coin production (among other items) are all there.

How about McBride's jumbo coins from silk, which is on his manipulation tapes? Is that basically the same effect and handling?

Cervon's (outstanding) version of the Chanin Trick is in "Ultra Cervon."

Wasn't the original Chanin sequence in Tarbell?

After seeing John Carney do his version of coins into hat on the Ramsay dvd he put out, I immediately thought it would be great for the street.

Especially with the top hat.

For those that wish to research the Chanin sequence (from Tarbell), if I remember correctly it's called "TV Surprise."

Doug Conn is close.

Chanin’s “T.V. Surprise” (Tarbell, volume 7, pages 167-170) does include part of the Coin from Handkerchief production.

However it is a fuller routine involving the production of coins, balls, and cigarettes. In effect a handkerchief is displayed front and back and one by one the performer produces three coins, two balls, two cigarettes, and a book of matches. The matchbook vanishes and finally a lit cigarette vanishes. The start set-up is slightly different than the straightforward coins from handkerchief (where 12 or 14 coins appear).

Bruce Cervon’s routine “Hanky Panky” (“Ultra Cervon,” pages 97-106) is similar but the methodology is different. Cervon based his routine on an Al Koran routine of the same name found in “Routined Manipulation Finale.” Actually the Koran/Cervon handling is closer to the handling found on Cellini’s new DVD as “the devils handkerchief.”

I don't do street so I don't know if I really should be posting what would work best. I do a lot of work though both stand up and close up, so here's what I've found works best for me as far as reactions. Close up would be a quick coins across routine in the spectator's hands, maybe for a few to draw a crowd. Stand up I would definitely do the coins through silk with dollar sized coins because it's so highly visual. The miser's dream is another favorite of mine because it's so fun and audible. Vernon has a routine on his Revelations series with coins in a silk where they disappear then reappear audibly one at a time.
