I'm looking for suggestions for a stand-up routine (not 3 fly or coins across) for a parlor setting. Go.

Look at "The Hook" by Larry Jennings...I think it's in The Classic Magic Of Larry Jennings". John Carey has a simplified handling here, if you want to get an idea of the premise.

How about miser's dream?

Hiya Corbett... Smile

You might take a look at Me & My Hat. I actually came up with it when asked to do something in close quarters during a company dinner where I strangely was the only one wearing a hat...They all wanted to know why? Smile It's not a "classic" as some mentioned here, but it worked out really well, and I still get invited to a lot of company dinners, and I'm not even a part of the company anymore. Smile

L'homme Masque and T.Nelson Downs did pretty well producing a handful of coins as they bantered. A guy named Jarrow pulled in a theater full of people with a coin transposition using a volunteer. There's also the coin into nest of boxes...

Books of classic magic await. What do you want to share with your audience?

Look at old coin magic books (pre-Bobo), many of which can be found online due to being out of copyright.
Since most performances back then were for parlour or larger, you will find plenty.

I think Miser's Dream is the best of the lot. I have only learnt it recently, but it has gone over extremely well on stage and up close.

Can't remember who it was -
Back in 1976 a magician had a volunteer for help.
He asked the man to hold his hands tightly together.

The volunteer was asked

Is there any way I could get anything in or out of your hands

The man answered no.
This was repeated a few times
The magi then told the man to slowly open his hands.

Out came an amazing amount of coins singly and then in a stream.
It was at a big I. B. M. Convention in Kansas City.

From the simple above

I have considered adding a quality coin ladder.

I stuck with the simple so far.
(At least on the platform level)

I think looking for a routine is the wrong way to approach coin magic in larger settings. Instead look at the way you perform and try to find ways to expand the size of it. Most coin magicians seem to think the audiences focus should be only in a 6 inch cube around the hands. Instead of showing a coin in front of your chest, raise the arm up and rest a bit longer each time you present a coin. This gives the audience more time to feel assured that the coin is where you say itis. Body language helps a lot too because people can't see the false transfer as clearly. After a false transfer, look at ways to better communicate that the coin is where you say it is.

Instead of producing coins from your sleeve or the air right in front of you, reach up into the air, or take off your shoe and dump out a coin.

I've performed 1 coin routines on stage. It can be done, just remember you have to be simple and clear with every action. If people have to strain to follow what you are doing, they will just give up trying to follow.

As a harmonica and ukulele player I have done coin interludes.

Harmonica has sour note (ala mosquito whistle)
Culprits are coins that come out--
Short
I repeat

Short coin thing then back to say

Walmart line blues.

Ukulele pic becomes coin

I use soft pics because I felt like it.
Pause for reader and or audience to groan.

Coin becomes pic
Pic changes color.

A tie aka ukulele strap allows both hands to be free
with uke still secure.

Then a short imitation of Jimmy Hendrix doing Star-Spangled Banner
