If you don't already have it, get J.B. Bobo's Modern Coin Magic.

Your not going to find much new stuff in a dvd. Bobos covers a lot.
I really only know of three dvds on coins, excluding revoultion.

www.CoinVanish.com has a nice little section talking about which videos to start with if you're a beginner. I'd recommend taking Dan's advice, since he knows what he's talking about with coins.

Same what he said. If you already have Modern Coin Magic, you'll probably already know most of the stuff on In the Beginning There Were Coins. However, if you're having trouble understanding some of the material in MCM or something of that sort, Jay Noblezada teaches you very well. He goes really slow and in to detail on everything.

I think you should still get ITBTWC though because it is a great DVD to have.

P.S. I have both MCM and ITBTWC if you were wondering.

Good choice, you can't go wrong with ITBTWC. Granted Bobo's is a awesome book and super well written. But in my opinion, it is much better to see someone demonstrate the sleights, mulitple times from different angles. Jay also teaches the subtle details that sell the tricks.

You just can't get that kind of instruction from Bobos MCM.

You should really get Bobo's along with the DVD. The DVD has a handful of BASIC, BASIC sleights and tricks, but Bobo's has basic-intermediate material. It will take you much farther than ITBTWC will.

He already has Bobo's and is apparently to lazy to read through it. If you are, in fact, to lazy to read through this Bible of Coin Magic, then get ITBTWC. It has the very basics of coin magic. Once you learn these well, read Bobo's book.

Oh, well I still stand with my original post that you shouldn't need In The Beginning. I'm tired of the "I need a visual demo" excuse. Anyone can learn by reading the book. If you have Bobo's and have read through it, then why would you spend three times the price of that book for a DVD with even more basic material on it? Bobo's should take you through the entire basic field of coin magic. You're next purchase should be something more advanced, even if it is a DVD.

Go to www.coinvanish.com and click on the Foundations section. It requires you to name an illustrated sleight as the password, which you will already know from Bobo's, then you can get in. There's an article at the very top called," I have Bobo's, now what?"

It will answer all your questions.

You can't actually be arguing that a written instruction for a sleight or trick is more effective than someone demoing it from a variety of angles, showing you the pitfalls, the subtle moves to sell the trick, the patter in sync with the moves, viewing the physics involved with the sleights, and seeing someone expertly execute the sleight, trick or routine to real spectators?

Of course a DVD would teach it better, but it is not necessary to learn. Bobo's features multiple illustrations for sleights from different angles, as well as describes how it should look. Also, you could to just find a video on youtube or magicvideodepot of a magician doing that sleight, so you can see what it looks like.
