Just about any coin trick?

But if I were you, I wouldn't do anything where a spectator holds onto a coin. They'll be eating food, and might not like the idea of touching money. Some people are weird like that.

If you use some gimmick coins, get the ones that can reset easily. If you always have to go to a corner to reset a coin, it can be a drag.

But they WILL be eating, and most people aren't going to want to get up to wash their hands after handling the same coin that almost everyone else in the place has handled. Best to leave the coins in your own hand.

Goblet coin magic tricks.
Not tricks like flying coins, Just have a goblet hand make transposistion routine. Having a ''goblet'' is a common object in a restaurant.

You dont have to bring a close up mat etc. just put your goblet on the table a proceed. also since they may be sit they wont be able to get a glimpse in the interior of the goblet. Even if they are stand up its not more of a problem but its a little plus.

I like the wallet pen by david stone. It works really well for a close-up sit down audience. I ask someone for a pen and if they have one i start setting up another trick like re-capped and then i look at the pen as if i'm suprised and say. "Oh, i didn't know this was a wallet pen". He usually says "what?!". I then say, "oh you didn't know; does it have anything inside?" He is still not sure what i'm talking about. I then say, " they usually put a half dollar in them before you buy it." I then start the routine. If you know the routine then feel free to use this patter if you don't then you can buy David Stone's "Basic Coin Magic". (like you said, something on the market). I then vanish the coin completely and then i might go into re-capped like i said i would. Oh, and if they don't have a pen i just pull out my own and then act suprised and say,"Oh, i didn't know i brought my wallet pen", and then use pretty much the same patter as before.

thegenius, you're being really lazy. Explain you're reasoning as to why your asking us to do work for you, instead of you doing your research like all other serious magicians.

First, you look at the material you have on coin magic, and select tricks you like from it.

If you want to go further, search the web for coin magic products, and purchase those once you've read reviews and researched about them.

It's that simple, and it's almost insulting to think that you want to make us do that work for you.

So you're saying that you cannot find coin tricks in magic stores? Even though coin magic is one of the biggest categories of conjuring?

Sorry, but I still don't buy your excuses.
