I like to do the coins across that Michael Ammar does. I have learned to do the coins across two ways so if the spectator wants to see it again I can show it a different way. It is a "must" that the effect use ungimmicked coins. I usually borrow them from the spectators.

I know one person who has a whole routine just on the coin roll.


He doesn't vanish it, he just makes it walk up and down his fingers. But the way he does it, he makes it look like the fingers don't move at all.


He can get about 5 minutes with the coin roll.

Is the "Questinable Trick" from "On The Spot" like the trick in "Off The Cuff" called "Something For Nothing"?

Questionable trick is a very simple in the specs hands transposition using seemingly 2 coins that add up to 11 cents - ungimmicked
catch you later

I have gotten screaming reactions from the quarter under the spectators watch. I learned this from an old Apocalypse magazine.

I believe thee is a version on the Greg Wilson video "Off The Cuff"

Changing two kennedy halves into four quarters using Mike Gallo's "Siamese Coins" is my favourite impromptu coin effect.

Yeah, but you need to have the siamese coins, so it's not impromptu!

The best is Greg Wilson's Pen routine. Also Mr. Clean's coins across by Sankey. This is a very similar effect that G. Wilson has on "On the Spot". Also good is Paul Green's "On top, beside or below". With the gaff, you have to improvise (which I do), and it kills people.

If you have guts, G. Wilson has a wonderful routine where the coin travels to the eye, the shoulder, falls from the sky, and ends up under the spectator's watch. It's great fun!

I love his coin effect called
Coin Under The Watch
that is taught in
Off The Cuff.
It's simple but really effective. I'm looking for tricks like these. Smile

I have to agree with ReyRey Puentes about Mike Gallo's 2 halfs to 4 quarters trick. But if you do a little searching you will find that Mike Gallo also has a no gimmick version. I believe it was in Richards Almanac and/or Michael Ammars Encore 3 (or is it 2) book.
Another one I like to do is from the Sol Stone DVD and I think he calls it fusion. It starts of with 2 quarters and you fuse them into one half dollar. Very clean. After that he does a coins across with the 2 quarters. A version of the Tenkia Pennies
hope it helps

What can you say about 3/4 Coins across effect? Is it impromptu?

While I don't believe there is a BEST impromptu coin trick, or for that matter a BEST anything, becuase it's entirely dependent on the situation and audience, however Dean Dill's No Extras is a very cool barehanded matrix, which can be done with 4 borrowed coins of any denomination, or any four small objects. This is something fun to play around with.

I like Sankey's Messiah Vanish, I also like that vanish "GONE!" I'm not sure what it's original name is "assuming it has one" but that is a good one.

Have seen David Roth`s "Expert Coin Magic" Vol. 2 video & it`s to tough for me. I need something for intermediate level. Is Mike Gallo`s video`s impromptu & a little easier?

John

What is Greg Wilson`s Pen routine all about? Does it use a gimmick?

Greg Wilson's pen routine is called RECAP.

Recap - The stuff legends are made from. Perhaps the most popular trick invented in the last 10 years. Stand in line to see a show at the Magic Castle, and I bet you someone's doing this for people while their waiting. What is Recap? It's an eye popping five-phase routine with a borrowed pen and its cap that you will use everyday - everywhere you go! (this version is taught in Off The Cuff)

ReCap Revisited - Gregory's classic, as you've never seen it. Greg's added new subtleties, moves and brilliant new ending where the pen is pulled from the pencap! (this version is taught in On The Spot)

This routine is taught by Michael Ammar I believe in Art Of Astonishment. It is totally impromptu. You just have to have a pen with a cap then you're ready for RECAP.
