There are many variations of Coins to Glass out there.

Which do you lads & lassies use? and more importantly why?

Danny Korem has one of the best write ups on it in his book IMHO. There's a couple written up in Bobo's. David Stone had a nice quick one with 3 coins only.
I've gone from using 5, to 4, and for a while now, only 3.

Anyways, here's mine at the moment. Will probably change in an hour or so LOL.

I've always felt the audible part of Coin to Glass made the trick very appealing to spectators.
For those that have done it, have you gotten a better reaction than say 3-Fly or other hand to hand coins across?

To me, coins to glass gets too redundant after the 2nd coin. Especially if the left or right hand is used everytime. I use to perform it years ago. I only used 3 Kennedy halves back then. It never really got the reactions that I really wanted. It got reactions but, I think most people think that they at least 1/2 way know how it's done b4 it is finished. I've only performed a 3 fly for a small handfull of people and the reactions were wayyyyyyyy stronger. $.02 db

Nice job. I like the extra right hand movement - it avoides the arthritic look I see in Danny's book (and many methods that use a CP.


My favorite (but haven't performed it yet) is a modified Passe-passe coins routine w/lids screwed onto mason jars. It is a modification of Tarbell's version in Vol 2 Lesson 23. Dan's modification looks much better than the original in the Tarbell books.

Great performance, Max!

I like this 3-coin version which I think does a good job skirting some of the issues that Dollarbill brought up.

You've added a bunch of great pieces to this; loved the salt, the jumbo coin, and while busy enjoying the salt I completely missed the wash!

Thanks for sharing!

Thanx for the input gents.
As Dollarbill mentioned, I know a lot of magicians who get much mileage out of 3-Fly. Each has advantages.

Thanx John for the Passe-passe with Mason jars lead. I will check it out.

Glad you enjoyed it sotchrocket. An ever evolving trick Smile

Yes, just masterful! 😁

I’m sorry I can’t seem to be critical or to offer any advice here, as to me it was quite perfectly done and completely magical. 😊👍🏽

Very good !!
Entertaining.
A little idea : You could steal the saltshaker and
produce as a final load.

Very nice routine indeed and I agree... instead of producing the jumbo, do something with the salt shaker.

Heya Gallagher. Hope you're doing well. About all we can do now is 'sit back and enjoy the on-line magic.' LOL

Thanx for your thoughts Nev & ismo. I agree with you there. In actual performance I don't usually end with a jumbo but go right into the Classic of wrapping the Glass in a newspaper and covering one coin. For this I need a spectator so just ended with a Jumbo.

I mentioned above that David Stone had one with 3 coins only. For those interested, here it is:

This is a fun little routine, too; great (minimal) use of being one behind.

His presentation is lightning quick. Bang, bang, bang, it's all happening.

Max, I'd say that is the nicest performance of coins to glass I've personally seen. It's elegant, deceptive and entertaining. The speed that you perform it is exactly right, with pauses and flourish in just the right places. Bravo on a great routine- something I do not say often.

Yes you have to hand it to David Stone. Brilliant. I love the ending. You never want to do the "hand over glass method " for the last one.
This is a perfect use of the retention vanish.

AT the same time, Rick Lax's filter is something I would include some of in a coins through glass routine.
It is really magical approaching the glass with a coin in the hand and coming away with it empty, and pouring the coins out of the glass.
Very convincing. If you could really do magic, you would at least do, IMHO, one of the coins to glass this way, apparently penetrating it cleanly.

David Acer has a really nice coins to glass in his book Natural Selections vol. 1, called Money flies. His routine does away with the repetitiveness of most routines and has a nice surprise ending. Works for stand up and walk around situations. He also performed it on the Magic Of Canada videos. Worth checking out.
