Definitely 3/4 across from On The Spot.

My favorite coin effects are from Gregory Wilson.

I like all of the coin effects he has on his 'On the Spot' videos.

If there is a coin lying around, I tend to go right into my coin to pocket effect, followed by a couple of vanishes and then into a coin in pen cap routine (if there's a pen lying around). It's probably one of the strongest things I do with ordinary objects.

Most of my Impromptu Coin Magic are from David Roth. I do a version of his Coins Across and I us the Lamaske move to make a coin re-appear.

I just shortened the coins across with the surprise ending that's on one of his "Coin Miracles" DVDs. I simply have a person hold their hands out together, I roll a coin, do a vanish and then the coin drops into their hand. So it appeared in mid-air(gasp). For such a simple effect that can be set up within a few seconds and only requires 2 coins that are the same, it gets hilarious reactions. 100% of the time the spectators look straight up in the air and stare.

I can't picture this
Can please you explain it a bit more?

If I can sit at a table, I find Coins Thru Table is stronger than Coins Across.
Coin in Pen Cap is very strong (I do Dan Harlan's three-part version).
But probably the impromptu coin effect that gets me the strongest response is Mike Ammar's One-Finger Spellbound -- it looks like the coin never leaves their sight. I use it to change a loonie into a silver dollar or a toonie.

Here are some that I am using / working on:

Pile of Change - a coin transposition (a penny to a quarter) using the spectator's change by Richard Sanders (appears on the Richard Sanders Show vol. 1).

Sh4de - shadow coin / chink-a-chink routine with four coins by Daniel Garcia. I've started to do the routine called "Only Four" from DGP vol. 2 as it is shorter.

Personal Safe - coins across in a spectator's hands. I learned this originally from Daniel Garcia's lecture notes called "Blueprints" but it also appears on DGP vol. 1.

Quarters - a coin through glass routine by Daniel Garcia that appears on DGP vol. 3 (I'm still working on this one as it uses a sleight that is new to me).

My favourite impromptu coin routine is a one coin sequence.

I Produce a coin, or borrow one, and do some coin rolls.
Then I do the coin that falls up, followed by a left hand vanish (terention pass) and reproduction from the right sleeve.
Then I execute a right hand vanish (french drop) and reproduce the coin from under my right elbow.

Then I do and spider vanish and appartenly vanish the coin completly.
In the end I blow the coin out of my nose (or, if I happen to have a jumbo coin with me which do happens some times I make the coin magically grow).

I've used this sequence as a table-hopping opener as well.

Joseph, I do this one a lot. And after making it fall up, I say "and do you know how that is done?" They say "no". Then I say "it's a rubber coin" and do the rubber coin move then drop the coin on the table, and watch them grab the coin to try and flex it, but they can't.

You must be smarter than the tools you are using...

Be on the look out for a wonderful impromptu coin effect by David Parr. It is his version of the Max Maven effect Positive/ Negative. Max's version can be found on his L&L Close Up Mentalism DVD. David's effect should make its appearance in the October Magic Magazine or so I hear. I will say no more...BUT I am interested in hearing what you think of it.

Muscle pass, not exactly easy to do, but a real treat to watch...


Exactly where can I learn Muscle Pass? I.E. a part of a dvd or a dvd itself taught by a coin magician on learning this wonderful skill/move? Thanks.
