I've seen it debated in these forums that flourishes don't accomplish much in terms of fooling audiences, but they look very impressive anyway. I just learned how to do a 4 coin roll, and I was wondering if anybody could point me in the direction of more coin flourishes. Thanks ^^

David Roth has a tape that covers all of the flourishes I've ever seen. It has a whole section about flourishes.

Once you can do the 4 coin roll-down, try going into the Down's coin star from that. Very pretty and not appreciably more difficult.

The four coins end up resting on the tips of the four outstretched fingers. Someone around here has a demo video of themselves doing it. Check Bobo for a description of the coin star. You'll have no problem figuring out how to go from one to the other if you see the illustrations in Bobo.

Hi. My old website on coin manipulation was mentioned in the above linked thread. Just wanted to let you know that the site has had a major update with many more flourishes, videos and pictures added. You can find the new site at

Thanks.
