An anywhere, anytime miracle that you’ll perform for
the rest of your life!
Since entering the literature of magic in the 1600’s,
the effect of passing coins through a solid table top
has captured the imagination of magicians and has led
to countless variations and versions. The trick’s
inclusion in the repertoires of some of close-up
magic’s most illustrious performers speaks to its
utterly mystifying effect on an audience.
In this volume, you’ll see eight different versions of
this close-up magic favorite with different
methodologies, presentations and even finales. David
Roth begins a performance and exposition of the
original Al Baker approach of passing the coins
through the table one at a time while Gary Ouellet
presents Dai Vernon’s version from Stars of Magic.
Steve Dacri demonstrates a version taught to him by
Slydini and refined by Vernon while John Mendoza uses
six coins rather than the traditional four and
finishes the routine with an unbelievable final
production. David Roth returns with the traditional
Han Ping Chien technique for passing three coins
through at one time followed by Larry Jennings with a
wonderful no-lap method. Johnny Thompson presents his
own version of the Baker routine followed by an
in-the-air transposition of three coins ala Han Ping
Chien, while David Regal presents an innovative method
– and presentation – for this close-up classic.
Passing a solid object through another solid object
has always been a favorite plot of magicians and the
commonness of coins and tables only adds another layer
of mystery and fascination to it. Learn one (or more!)
of these methods and you’ll be ready to entertain and
bewilder anyone at anytime with objects that are
completely ordinary and familiar.
