Learn How To Make A Coin Disappear

How To Make A Coin Disappear (courtesy of Howcast.com)

You may have seen this one a million times, but now, it’s your turn to pull the quarter out of somebody else’s ear! You will need:

A table or flat surface
An isolated seat or position, and
A coin, preferably a quarter.

Optional:

A napkin

Step 1 – Place a coin on the surface about a foot in front of you, and announce that you’re going to perform a magic trick, but don’t say what it is.

Step 2 – Casually, reach toward the coin, covering most of it with your first 3 fingers, and slide it along the surface toward yourself.

Step 3 – When it reached the edge of the surface, simply let the coin drop. However, pretend it’s still in your hand, as you raise it to eye level, holding it between your thumb and first two fingers. It’s easier to perform this trick while sitting, so the coin can drop onto your lap. And, if you can have a napkin in place to catch it, even better!

Step 4 – Show the coin to your friends. As long as you make some distracting chatter and keep your hand moving, they’ll think they’re seeing it!

Step 5 – Now, move the imaginary coin to your other hand and make a fist, as if that hand now holds the coin. Make a point of showing the audience that the hand that previously held the imaginary coin is now empty.

Step 6 – With a flourish, show that both hands are empty. Just make sure the dropped coin is nowhere in site!
