A spectator is handed a coin. They are asked to close their hand around the coin an focus on the feelings and sensations of the coin in their palm. After a few moments the coin is seen to be removed from their hand. The performer comments on how strange it is that the spectator can still feel the coin in their closed fist, much like when a ring is removed from a finger, a watch or necklace, the weight and the shape seem to remain despite the object no longer being worn.
The performer then suggests using these feelings to cause something very strange to happen. The performer takes the coin, causes it to disappear. The performer passes a knowing look toward to the spectators hand, who opens their closed fist to find the coin within once again.
