Pick up the sugar packet and allow the sugar to fall to the bottom. Tear open the packet (along the same line as the slit, effectively destroying the evidence) and dump the coin and the sugar onto the napkin.
Pocket the packet, then appear to pick up the napkin... allowing the coin and the sugar to spill onto the table. In reality... pin the coin to the napkin with your left thumb as you allow the sugar only to spill onto the ACTUAL SIGNED COIN, which is sitting on the table below the napkin.
Have the person whose initials are on the label pick up the coin and verify them.
