To Get Rid Of Coin After Vanishing It In Hand

To the audience the coin has vanished when the hand is opened, but to the performer there still remains the problem of disposing of the coin which is still in one of his hands.

The best place for depositing the coin is in one of your pockets. I described the Top Pocket Vanish before in this lesson.

Let us assume that coin is in your right hand. You want to dispose of it by dropping it into your right trouser's pocket. To do this without being detected requires MISDIRECTION.

Reach out with left hand before you open it to show that coin has vanished. As you reach forward, the body bends forward, and the right hand automatically comes near the right trouser's pocket. Have left side of body toward audience, and as your left arm swings forward to pretend to give coin to an assistant or to vanish it, slip fingers of right hand into pocket and drop coin there. Remove right hand from pocket immediately. Figure 73 shows view away from audience.

When you have perfected this move, you may even have front of body toward audience. Lean forward and make throwing motion with left hand and you will secure sufficient MISDIRECTION to enable you to drop coin in right trouser's pocket without detection. Other methods may be used, such as the following: Turn left side to audience and pick up something from table with left hand, at the same time dropping coin into right pocket.

You may use the same moves for getting coin into coat pocket -- also for getting the coin from left hand into left pocket.

Many times in vanishing a coin I do not hurry to get rid of it, but take my time and drop it into my pocket when reaching for a handkerchief or some other article. Or sometimes I lay it on the table where it can't be seen when I reach for my wand.
