Modern Coin Magic by J.B. Bobo (http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=535) has tons of coin vanishes and appearances. You should be able to find something in there.

I'm probably not 100% accurate on the names here, but still think the thumb-palm vanish is one of the most beautiful effects around. And likely the oldest -- but it still amazes all ages, and is the only reason I got interested in coin magic at all.

With practice it can happen in less than the blink of an eye, and with innovation and careful use of angles can be moved to a back-thumb clip (to show the inside of your thumb clean) and then revealed with a (i have no idea what to call this) jerk-throw planting it right in your palm as if from nowhere.

It also makes a fine retention vanish, imho.

If you're looking for a total vanish of a coin that ends clean, look at the Catapult videos from Brian Platt. There's also the Aspirazu Coin Vanish, which is gimmicked but will fool anyone.

Wasn't the thumb palm thing popularized by Goshman? I have never seen it but heard that it was beautiful in his hands

i jus say false transfers because they look good and are easy to perform although magicians can probably spot them lay people are easier to fool of course. get the book google521 recommended it is essential to your knowledge on the art of coins

I have been doing magic for some years and can do most of the false transfers, but what I am looking for is a full coin vanish at the end that can be a new concept so maybe i can fool some of the magicians on my local forum.

a full vanish with one hand? either a sleeve or a pocket throw is all I have to offer, but hopefully the pro's will give us something else.

Make sure you post your video for us when you're done :lol:

-----To the guy that is talking about the "thumb vanish thing"

Are you referring to the Down's palm? If so..ya I agree with you. It's beautiful and a REAL classic. :P

How many can you produce from the crotch of your thumb?

Downs palm, yeah I think that's what it's called in Bobo.

I can pull five of those new gold dollars, but only work with 4 normally. I have this one drill where I fake putting the last one into my other hand 5 extra times (banging my hand to clink the 3 that are there), then letting it fall in on the last one. Switch hands and release 6 hidden coins from the other sleeve, then switch the 4 back into that hand and reveal 10 coins.

So I can do 10 :wink:

Thanks.

It's not a perfected "routine" just yet, I'm still working on it in private. The hard part is silencing the "scrape" that the first 3 coins make when produced. This wouldn't be a problem in a noisy room, but then, i really need you to hear the "ka-chink" as i fake the other 6 throws.

I know I could invest in some good palming coins, but I really like working with the new gold dollars. They seem to fit my hands well, and they make good tips, change for beggars, and souvenirs for the kids.

Any tips on how to soften coins like these? I polish them in fine sand but it doesnt seem to help...

I like to perform a French Drop, along with a Snap Vanish in the sleeve. Look in the Bobo Bible.

if you have cutting edge cards and coins they teach a good vanish that would work for you.
