Daniel Garcia has a pretty visual coin routine that uses it. I believe it's on Daniel Garcia Project Volume 3. I actually wish I could do it for that one routine...

Yeah it's pretty cool. I can do a pretty good muscle pass with a silver dollar but i still find it hard to do with a quarter which you use for Daniel Garcia's trick "Quarters" haha

I can do it with a half dollar. It took about three weeks to get my pass to shooting about a foot vertically and about 6 inches horizontally. I developed the callus in about two weeks of constantly repeating the "move" (and I mean constant).

BTW - I didn't buy any DVD, just figured out what had to be done, and did it for a while.

For the ones saying that doing the muscle pass with a quarter is nearly impossible and if acctualy get it up is only a few inches, I have practised this sleight with a Canadian quarter which is a little bit smaller than a US quarter and have gotten up to a foot. After moving up to a American Half Dollar I now have my pass nearly 2 feet. Not as good as David Kong (havent seen Jay's yet). I practised with that quarter everyday at school listen to the teacher and walking down the halls. Lots of time to practise. Moving onto a bigger coin was much easier obviously.

It's not impossible with a quarter, just keep practising like everyone has been saying through this thread.
I have Danny's Quarters Routine down good but not good enough for performance yet. I have showed some people (people being my family) but I still think it needs some work.

I can Muscle Pass with a quarter about 1.5 feet with about 3 months practice. Please note that I have tiny hands, I can't even palm bridge size cards.

Actually it can be used to "pass coins through glass" if practiced enough.

Just to keep in mind....I'm sure you don't have to use quarters hahaha. It's just a title...the title is like a guide it's just a guide hahaha.

I personally use american hald dollars cause I'm most comfortable with them for this effect. It's very hard to keep a flat hand when executing the muscle pass to keep the visual more appealing and convincing.

Most of the explanations and demonstrations of the muscle pass use a silver dollar but this is not really much help when you are performing in other countries and it looks a little strange to use US currency in some countries.

Has anyone come across any foreign coins that work well for the muscle pass? Especially interested in experiences with British coins and currency in South America.

At the moment the only other option i have come across is using a poker chip as Jay Noblezada shows in his DVD...

almost all coins "work" with the muscle pass. It's just that some hands can't do the smaller coins like penny's, nickel's and quarters. And some people can't do big coins like silver dollars. I can do it at my best with half dollars and coins around that size. But I can also do it with silver dollars, but just not as high.

The muscle pass is a great, great move to learn. I do it a whole lot, and it blows people away. Never heard of Daniel's routine, but I am guessing it can't be done with half dollars? I can't muscle pass a half dollar, much less a quarter. With a silver dollar, I can get it about 1-1.5 feet, and with a poker chip, about 2-2.5 feet. But I have big hands, making for half dollars hard and quarters impossible.
