At this moment, the left fingers curl up slightly for just a second, to cover the following action: the right hand presses down on the folding coin, causing the lower third to flip back horizontally (refer to figure two — performer's view). The fold of the coin presses into the crease in the palm. From the spectator's viewpoint, the coin is seen in the act of penetrating the palm!
This illusion is displayed just long enough for the impact to register. Now turn the left hand inwards. Simultaneously, the folding coin is dropped into the left palm, held in place by pressure with the fleshy base of the left thumb. (For all intents and purposes, you are taking the coin into a Classic Palm grip, but this need not be perfect as long as the coin is held securely).
The lme-up for the International Day of Magic on Sunday 18 December include Doug Alker, A1 Goshman, Bob Gill, Fred Kaps, Bob Read and Juan Tamarix, in close-up. Not to be missed.
