Multiple Coin Production

EFFECT: Four coins are produced from the hands.

PROCEDURES: Begin by secretly palming three coins (halves or silver dollars) in a right-hand classic palm and one coin in a left fingerpalm. Your body is turned slightly to the left.

When you are prepared as described, make a magical gesture with your left hand; then open your hand to reveal a coin on your left palm.

Bring your palm-down right hand over to your left hand and grasp the coin with your right forefinger and thumb. As your right hand takes this coin, your left fingertips are in a perfect position to contact and silently dislodge one of the coins from the right-hand classic palm. FIGS. 1 and 2 show an audience view and an exposed view, respectively.

As the right hand lifts the coin from the left palm, the left fingers close around the stolen coin (FIG. 3). This action is totally hidden.

Place the coin you removed from your left hand on the table. Make a magical gesture with your left hand; then open your left hand to display a second coin resting in the same position as the first coin you produced. Remove this coin with your right forefinger and thumb, stealing a coin from the right-hand classic palm in the manner already described. The left hand closes into a fist.

Place the coin you removed from your left hand on the table. Make a magical gesture with your left hand and then open your left hand to display a third coin. Remove this coin with your right forefinger and thumb, stealing the last coin from the right-hand classic palm in the manner already described. The left hand again closes into a fist.

Place the coin you removed from your left hand on the table. Make a magical gesture with your left hand and then open your left hand to display a fourth coin. Flip this coin into the air and then table it with the first three coins to complete a very convincing production of four coins.

As this poster shows, even in my early years 1 tried to use some of the principles mentioned in MakingMagic Memorable. This certificate gave people who helped with my show something they could take home and put on their wall to commemorate the event The back of the certificate had a black strip printed across it, so that when it was rolled up, it looked like a magic wand. I suppose some people could use a little creative artwork and use this poster for themselves. Would I mind? Naw. If you look that much like what I used to look like, you need all of the help you can get

This performance ofThe Crazyman's Handcuffs for the magicians in Moscow turned into a genuine theatre in the round!

This was the first time that the Russian magicians were exposed to magic, and they couldn't get enough it!
