Whoops, forgot to mention that the Gallo Pitch will do the same thing as the Tenkai Pennies, if you've got a table, rug, or other surface to toss the two coins on.

It also makes a good follow-up to Tenkai Pennies.

ChessMess,I have the same problem. I tried with smaller coins like 2 euro but it is the same. So I think it is a question of weak classic palming technique.

Use a thumb palm or thumb clip? Whatever? the thumb thing. Then move it to a classic or finger tip rest.

Masilon,

It may help to make sure all four coins stay close to the finger tips. You can actuallly hold them there with the tips of your outside fingers. Then slide the top coin out to the fingertips and classic palm. I think this helps prevent the other coins from jamming up in your hand to prevent a smooth transfer to classic palm.

There are 2 Coins Across routines that can be viewed at either of these websites, by Wing.

I second Paul Cummins underhand coins across. It is very fair in showing the hands with only one two three or four coins.

I do Richard Sander's version all the time. All four coins travel to the spectator's hand one at a time. The reason I prefer this one is that when the spectator feels the first coin drop into their hand they always are caught by surprise. Then the second and third one travels to their hand and they are speechless. The last passes right through their closed fist!
This version never fails to please. Why make them travel to your other hand when you can make all the magic happen in THEIR hand.
